I love how the media panics over Netflix-geddons as if it's some 10.7 earthquake for the industry--That'll teach 'em for going crazy over streaming.
I've had streaming Netflix on my PS3 for four years now, and since most movies (even back when they still had Starz) are licensed Jan 1 - Dec. 31, there's usually an average eight to ten movies on my queue that are set to expire on New Year's Eve, and I spend the last Christmas and post-Christmas weeks on movie binges doing my annual cleaning of old "Now, why did I rent that?" titles gathering dust on my queue. Kinda look forward to it.
This year there were only five (and one set for Jan 4, so i can buy some time), and I'm all caught up for this year.
