So, I posted earlier on their decision to split up the service, and it seems that they've actually 'listened' to their customers and are now ditching
the idea of splitting the streaming/dvd services.
I believe the decision comes in most part due to the fact that the branding of Qwikster would have been completely new, and the fact that the queue
and history would have been separate for each service - which most people found to be pretty annoying.

that's when they began showing huge losses. If we can get in the ballpark of $10 for streaming+dvd I'll be a happy camper again.
As far as their video game addition to the service, word is there is no set decision yet and that it is to 'be determined'.
