Move over iTunes, Netflix is the largest online movie service According to new data from IHS iSuppli, Netflix has surpassed iTunes as the largest U.S. online movie service, when ranked by revenue.
In 2010, Netflix controlled just 1 percent share of revenue, while Apple controlled 60.8 percent. By 2011, however, that number had changed dramatically, with Apple falling to 32.3 percent share to Netflix's 44 percent.

"2011 marked a sea change in the online movies business that saw the balance of consumer spending shift from a DVD-like transactional model to more TV-like subscription approach,"
adds Dan Cryan, research director for digital media at IHS. "The online movie business more than doubled in 2011 to reach $992 million and it is expected to double this year as well."

Netflix's revenue share was directly affected by the same move that alienated customers. Over the summer, the company split its DVD and streaming services, charging $7.99 for each instead of the $9.99 for both model that it had used for over two years.

People have a short memory.

Both iTunes and Netflix suck.

Never wanted iTunes. I'm not paying $0.99 for a single song and Netflix lost me as a longtime subscriber a while back.

I want the whole album not just the freak of the week.

You have to install the MXpie patch 3.6 in order to get the WinMX program to work.The site was shut down at one time and they came up with a patch in order for you to get online. Install MXpie 3.6 first then install the WinMX 3.53 and set it up.

Video/Studios/Networks took way too long to get their crap together and I found "other" alternatives which work FAR better.
When Netflix can stream me an entire HD movie with zero stutter then maybe I'll look into it again.

Netflix's problem is that they cache such a small amount so when there are network issues then the movie stutters.
There MUST be an ability to cache the ENTIRE movie.
I know that will never happen...
hence "other" alternatives.


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
