Now that Netflix is pushing their "streaming only" option as the preferred method, is anyone a bit concerned? I have opted for DVDs only for a couple reasons.

(1) Streaming has been very unreliable here for the last couple months.
(2) Streamable selection kind of sucks.

Also, my only available cable provider for my internet use is Craptastic Comcast/Xfinity.
They are quite pissy about download/upload use. They actually CUT OFF one man here in the state for the next twelve months for going over what they considered "normal" use. He uses his internet for movies, music, online JOB, and accessing the "Cloud" and it adds up.

Presumably, one could watch enough movies to go over Comcast's current limits. Then what?

I know Comcast claims it is a liberal amount, but they parse it in terms of downloaded MUSIC...which takes less than movies. So, while I am terribly unschooled in this particular aspect of online life, it does make me wonder.

Especially since Comcast/Xfinity is a competitor with Netflix, I see trouble ahead.
