Xbox Live Gold

Is it just me? Since when is it ok to charge a customer a fee for live gold membership monthly (or annually still $5/mo) just to use Netflix that you're already paying $7.99 a month for? Playstation 3 doesn't do that! That's at least $12.99 a month just to use Netflix! Well, I for one would rather trade in my xbox 360 for a playstation 3 than to be charged up the you-know-what just to use Netflix. I already pay for Netflix. I shouldn't have to pay for a gold membership just to use the Netflix App. XBOX sucks & I will be reposting this on every possible blog/social networking/search engine site that I can find!

 

Question Info

The payment is for playing on a premier LIVE network, and having access to everything Live offers, not just Netflix. But hey, if you feel comfortable switching to a Sony server, where your personal account info could be lost or stolen, then go right ahead.

There is a reason that LIVE is the best gaming network among the consoles, if you hang around a while, you may get the opportunity to experience that for yourself. Or, like I said, feel free to troll on Sony's forums.

I feel the same! I can understand the gaming side of it, but Microsoft can't make money from selling their software anymore so now they charge people to use internet Explorer on the Xbox and all the other FREE apps out there! AppleTV doesn't charge a cent extra for Netflix or HBO etc. And Apple is the king of overpricing!

Hey there GAGGERLAK!

I can definitely see how this might be a frustrating situation. I suggest making a post over in our Feedback Forums so it can be seen by the right folks and they'll be able to take it into account. =)
