It looks like Netflix listened after all. I got an announcement via email today that said that they're not going to split services, and instead keep everything under the Netflix brand.
Today, CEO Reed Hastings announced that both services will remain under the same website, due to widespread unpopularity of users having to maintain accounts over two platforms. So that means no Qwikster.
This is very smart. Also smart? No more price increases.
Netflix, you're starting to move in the right direction.
