Netflix Abandons Qwikster: Reaction Around the Web

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.
