The split and fee increases are premature by 5 years. The streaming programming choices are too limited. FCC Net neutrality is still being battled over and high bandwidth streaming will suffer (or cost more) if neutrality is lost. Consumers want one stop shopping, but if it is too costly or inconvenient the other services will get the business.

Netflix price is too high for earnings and growth. Instead of splitting and decreasing - they should be folding in increased value to subscribers. They threw away the massive advantage of the one-stop shop ( think Amazon) and will have increased competition from Dish-blockbuster , Youtube, the free streaming sites, Usenet and whomever buys Hulu. The value of subscribers is lost with each cancel or shift in users and they are a deflating bubble at this point. This is about selling the dvd division and cashing out executives and founding shareholders but hurting the greater company.
