Vansmack -- My question, which you answered more or less, was based on the idea of not renting movies due to content.  They are guilty of not carrying albums or censoring albums.  
 
 This discussion has shown that Netflix may indeed come out on top with this deal.  However, I still will not support them.  If I can avoid supporting Wal-Mart, I will.

i dont really see it this way. WalMart and Netflix teamed up, done. no conceding anywhere i dont think. Netflix is no longer "the little guy" so I'll go find the next little guy to support.
 
   I bought stock in Netflix a long time ago, and i have been a customer for over 2 1/2 years, so i am moving on.  hows that a high horse?
 
  besides, I have a new house, i dont have time to sit around and watch movies.

If you guys want to get upset about something that will really affect you, US Airways and America West announced a merger.  
 
 US Airways will be moving it's headquarters from Crystal City to Phoenix.

I understand your points econo, and I know you to be one to do some research.  I just wanted to make sure other people were paying attention and not having a knee jerk reaction to this deal.
 
 There is no profit sharing in this deal - it's purely a marketing deal, and if you don't want to support Wal-Mart, don't click the link from Netflix's page to buy the DVD.  
 
 Of course, by Netflix making it easier to buy DVD's from Walmart, others will not use the same restraint that you will show, and I know that's what you're getting at.

Of course not.  Now that you're a homeowner, you pay attention to everything!
