Netflix has been battling bad press since several changes to service last year confused subscribers. The first being a rate-increase, and and announce split between their instant streaming, and DVDs-by-mail service. The former change was later canceled.
Netflix currently has 25 million subscribers, many of which use the hybrid streaming, and DVD service that costs approximately $19 a month. While still much cheaper than renting multiple films at video stores, or using on-demand cable, Netflix recently lost millions of subscribers because of that late 2011 rate increase.
It should be noted that these films will still be avaiable via DVD-by-mail. Head over to Movie Fan Central to suggest to others your favorite Starz films that we shouldn't miss before they are gone.
