You know, I can't help but think that Netflix is about to shoot itself in the foot AGAIN by trying to get into bed with the cable companies.

I've subscribed to Netflix before (I don't currently), and LOVED it.  When I did subscribe, it was to GET AWAY from the cable bill ball & chain.  I don't think I'm alone there...

I don't think people that are paying some nasty-high cable bills already are going to appreciate being asked to pay even MORE to take advantage of the streaming option.  And, why pay extra to add it to cable when you can have an independent subscription to Netflix for nearly the same $$?  Unless Netflix is working toward doing away with their independent service altogether.  And if that's the case, I can almost hear that gun cocking now...
