But that's still a good thing, isn't it? You'll definitely never have to pay for another cable subscription! But you'll probably end up spending just as much money subscribing a la carte to the networks of your choice that happen to have the shows you want to watch. You'll need a freaking spreadsheet to keep track of which subscription you need in order to watch which shows, because CBS and Lionsgate aren't going to let Netflix continue to stream any of their properties once they've got their own services. Watching TV is about to become exactly as much fun as itemizing your receipts.
And speaking of exclusives, the fun doesn't stop there, because shows you used to be able to watch in one place are getting moved around or having arbitrary restrictions placed on them. Like watching episodes of South Park on Netflix, or for absolutely free on the South Park Studios official website? Too bad, because they recently signed a deal that made every single episode of the show's 17 year history exclusively available to Hulu Plus subscribers. That means you have to shell out an extra 8 bucks a month just for South Park.
