  1. No surprise there, I think everyone is pissed at their ridiculously large rate hikes. I will most likely cancel my subscription, at least temporarily, in protest. Not sure if I’ll subscribe to just streaming or just DVD in the future, I’ll have to weigh the options. In the meantime, I’m just pissed at the rate hikes!
