Now I am considering whether I am staying with Netflix at all and have postponed getting a Roku Netflix player indefinitely. I've read comments from Netflix customers that just received their Roku player that are now looking to sell them. The type of customer that would purchase the Roku Netflix player and the type that use customer profiles are fairly similiar.

In fact, I think Netflix is dumping the profiles feature because they couldn't make it work with the Roku box or other streaming technologies that they're currently working on. I take this is as a sign that they're more committed to streaming content than ever.

But what really scares me is what if Netflix decides that because only 2% of their customers use the streaming feature they decide to drop it altogether (which is the justification for dropping profiles), leaving me with a 99$ paperweight. It is really scary that they drop features without blinking an eye.
