I still consider $10-$12 a month for tens of thousands of movies, TV shows and originals to be pretty reasonably priced. Doubly so when compared to cable or satellite.
Those "tens of thousands of movies, TV shows and originals" are kind of like the cable companies advertising 100's of channels or Roku saying they have 1000's of apps. It is not the numbers but rather it is the quality and Netflix has been reducing their overall quality for some time.
Netflix has allowed their "rights" contracts for many many quality movies to expire without making much attempt to add quality movies to replace them while the funnel the revenue into "original" content. I would bet if you graphed the average "star" rating for content carried on Netflix the graph would show a steady decrease over the last few years and, if you excluded the "original" content, the slope of the graph would be much steeper.
Netflix is evolving toward becoming an on-demand cable company with all the baggage and customer abuse that comes with that model. At least they still do not require contracts.
