Netflix is not the Problem. They're the solution to a problem that shouldn't exist!

Everyone is complaining about Netflix trying to find a polite way to charge more for their instant watch service. What you should be complaining about are the cable companies. Here's why:

Netflix has found a way to offer you a service that your cable company is too stupid to offer: actual on demand viewing of movies and shows you want to watch. Your cable company already has the infrastructure in place to offer on-demand viewing, already has the content, and already has a lot more of your money than Netflix. And for all of that you get on demand viewing of maybe a couple episodes of shows you might want to watch. Netflix charges you 1/10 of what your cable company charges you to get access to much much more on any device, anywhere you get internet. The problem is not the service that Netflix offers, the problem is that you should already get this service for free from the company you already pay to bring you the same content.
