No, Netflix is on record as having the business model of "Give the customers exactly what Netflix wants". They've removed many, many titles that users were enjoying because Netflix felt that users would enjoy a different selection more. There's plenty of slashdot articles on this.
Exactly! I dropped Netflix a few months ago, for a couple of reasons. One was that they weren't keeping a lot of the classic TV I like (don't care for most of the newer shows or their "Netflix Originals"). The other was I don't like how they started shrinking the closing credits into a small box on the Roku without an option to turn that "feature" off by default. Annoying to have to grab the remote at the end of a show or movie to enlarge the credits. I'm mainly watching Hulu now, along with CBS All Access and Acorn TV.
Does that better content library include older shows? I'd heard that Hulu's main advantage was in more current shows (most of which suck), and NF had as much or more older stuff.
Hulu is great for older shows. In my queue, I currently have shows like Green Acres, Family Affair, The Addams Family, The Incredible Hulk, Lou Grant, the original Battlestar Galactica, Space:1999, The Merv Griffin Show, The Dick Cavett Show, Car 54 Where Are You?, CSI:Crime Scene Investigation, CSI:Miami, Dark Shadows, My Favorite Martian, The Lone Ranger, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Mister Ed, Night Gallery, The Outer Limits... just to name a few.
Insiders have been the beta-testers for the past 6 months...
I've been using it about that long, the technical previews, and most recently 10240 about a week ago. Using it on my main desktop. No major issues noticed, except things from the Windows Store won't seem to install.
Hey Cortana, how can I block ads when I'm using Edge?
Once I can block ads, I'll give it a serious try. Until then, I'll stay with Firefox.
I don't. I tried to sign up with Yahoo a few weeks ago and got cockblocked by this. They required a mobile number.
I've been using Yahoo Plus Email (the paid version) for about 12 years. If they start REQUIRING me to use a mobile phone to access my account, I'll just have to cancel the account. Never owned a mobile phone, and not going to get one JUST to access an email account!
