Netflix Disappointment

Remember when Netflix started making us wait two weeks to get new releases? It was supposed to be a tradeoff to get more streaming content from Hollywod. Now here we are with higher prices than ever, less streaming content, and still no new releases on DVD.

Why can't we have a Rdio or Spotify for movies and TV? At some price, this should be possible, right? I know that is what I want, and I don't think I'm the only one. How much would you pay for it? I think my max price is somewhere north of $35/month, assuming I can use it on all of my devices. Doesn't it seem like there's a very profitable business out there for this kind of service at that price? I'm guessing backwards thinking in Hollywood is to blame here, along with continued paranoia over privacy. At least HBO seems to be getting this right.
