Netflix Subscribers Peeved

In a recent update, Netflix has removed the option to add movies to your DVD queue from devices other than your computer, such as a PS3 or an XBox. This outraged a surprising number of their subscribers, who told Netflix off via Netflix's blog. It's no surprise that Netflix is doing this, it's just one step in their direction to leave the DVD-rental market and enter into streaming-only. A recent study shows that it costs Netflix $1 to mail one DVD, but only $0.05 to stream that same movie.  While many people may be unsatisfied with the removal of the button, I wonder how many people would cancel their Netflix service because of it. Probably not many, as Netflix is for sure hoping.
