I've been a huge Netflix fan. However, with their recent price increase, I'll be cutting my service package.
A decade ago, In the mountains of Chiapas in Southern Mexico, residents who lived in shacks had access to the latest Hollywood movies, via transmissions that they seemed to be able to intercept--I don't know how. I remember they saw "Gladiator" way before I did. I wonder if they still can do that. They won't need Netflix. Not that they could afford that monthly fee.
When My husband and I discussed the downgrade of our Netflix plan, we worked through some conflict about it. The deciding factor was "need vs. want" and our usage quotient. We just didn't use the streaming services enough to warrant the expenditure. We can afford it, we just don't need it.
I think that's a good criterion on which to make any financial decision.
