Netflix behind Gold subscription?

I know that it sounds stupid and I'm not trying to be confrontational, but as much as I want an XBox One, I don't plan on getting one unless Microsoft removes things like Netflix and other apps from under the Gold Subscription.  I understand that it's their right to do what they want with their console, but I don't like being asked to pay a 3rd time (Netflix subscription and internet being the other two) for a service that's so widely available and that Microsoft doesn't actually provide themselves.  I just don't want to support that.  I love my XBox 360 and I'd most likely still be a Gold member, but it's more the principal of the thing.

Am I the only one who feels this way?

I should mention that I have been a Gold subscriber for years and only recently started re-evaluating this sort of things as I've gotten older.

Sad thing is that Netflix does not run through MS Servers, yet they have the paywall.  No doubt all the fanboys will come on and defend it till death.

so if i have a sub to netflix i use through my phone or pc

and i wish to watch via xbox i have pay again ?

[/quote]You only pay for your netflix sub once; however, if you wish to use Netflix on your xbox you will need to have a gold sub in order to do so.

^^^^ ok that seems fair

if you are using xbox live's m/s  facilities


 

Third party apps shouldn't be behind the pay wall but they are unfortunately. One word comes to mind "GREED"

Ehh, I don't think i's exactly fair to say Microsoft is asking you to pay 3 times because that'snot even remotely true.  Yeah, you pay for internet which your ISP asks you to pay, but from there it's up to you what you do with it.  Micro$oft only asks you to pay for their service, DLC, etc.  Just like NetFlix asks you to pay a subscription service, plus any additional plans you add, if any (Micro$oft doesn't ask you to pay to DL it.).  As for it eing "locked" behind Gold, I don't think you can sign in even on a Silver acct on XBox One as there are evry minimal reasons for said level of service to even exist anymore, though I could very easily be wrong on this.  Besides, there's way many more reasons behinbd paying for XBox Live vs PlayStation Network, I use both, though not PSN as nearly as much as XBox Live.

You can not use any of the all ready payed for subscriptions unless you folk out for Gold Membership. You have already payed the third party to use the whatever subscription service, payed your ISP for internet access and you have already payed Microsoft for the Xbox console in which you now own. We should be given access to these third party applications whether we pay gold or not should be irrelevant.

then moan at your third party 

when m/s wanted to put the bbc iplayer on xbox they refused to allow it

unless every body in the uk had access to it whether gold or not

so that says m/s will  do it if the third party demands it 

personally all i do with my xbox is play games


 

NO.... " because of the way that the BBC is funded, its content can't exist behind a paywall. "
