This is sad

Time magazine says Netflix's Streaming Library is Shrinking Fast

They're down to 4,335 movies. When I joined, they had about 20,000, I believe.

At my peak, I had rated about 3,300 titles on, with star ratings, back when you could do that. I rated only movies I had actually seen.

One of the reasons I quit Netflix was their shrinking DVD collection, and that was a few years ago. for sale

Quit Netflix

I forgot to mention I haven't been a Netflix subscriber since about October 2016.

Back with Netflix

I first joined Netflix in 2004, and stayed until 2015.  I took a one-year break, and just rejoined today, for the basic streaming plan, and started over with a one-month free trial. My list of movies and all my ratings are gone from when I was a member before, so I'm not going to bother rating all those movies again; I don't really need recommendations. The first few titles I searched for were unavailable, so we're not off to a good start.

A Year Without Netflix

I can't believe it's been a year since I suspended my Netflix account. I watched 45 movies last year, and only four were DVDs from Netflix and one streaming.  Now I use Redbox, if I really need a movie, or I go to the theater.

I have suspended my Netflix account, for the time being. I'm still a huge Netflix fan, and I still recommend the service, but you don't need me to tell you it's awesome. Almost everyone has Netflix now. Congratulations to Netflix, for a job well  done.

24 Struggles Every Netflix Addict Will Immediately Understand

This list from Buzzfeed applies to streaming customers mainly. I'm a DVD-only subscriber. I gave up my streaming account when I gave up broadband. I've switched Internet service providers. I'm now with Time-Warner Cable on the Everyday Low Price plan, which is $14.99 per month for 3 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload. The speed has been very consistently between 2-3 Mbps download, which is enough for me.
