Netflix has dropped the add to DVD queue option from all streaming capable devices. Blu-ray players, game consoles, iPhone and iPad users have to visit the regular website to add any DVDs. The company wants to concentrate on the titles that are available to watch online.
Netflix has started offering the streaming only plan in the US and hiked the rates for DVD subscriptions. Many home theater equipment makers, including Boxee, have agreed to start implementing One-Click Netflix buttons that take users directly to the streaming option. The change has bring out negative criticism too from subscribers. Many subscribers have argued in the comments and they will still continue to use physical discs and it makes the process difficult if a movie is not available to stream but otherwise it can be added to the DVD queue to fill in the gap.
