Netflix Abandons Qwikster: Reaction Around the Web
Just three weeks after announcing Qwikster, Netflix has abandoned the DVD-by-mail spinoff, sending the Internet into a frenzy.
This move comes just three weeks after Hastings introduced the idea of Qwikster. It was the latest misstep after Netflix announced in July a price increase that sent its stock price and number of subscribers tumbling.
So while Netflix did address issues with Qwikster, it hasn’t changed its stance on the new pricing.
Thanks to Storify, here’s how the Web reacted after Qwikster was dumped.
