Netflix took a pretty huge blow when they split services (DVD and streaming services were once on the same $7.99 bill) in the fall, prompting a massive loss of customer subscriptions in the beginning.
Rumors of Netflix video game rentals seemed to spice things up, but according to reports on Engadget, Netflix stated in their Q4 2011 earnings report that they have “no plans” to go through with a rumored video game rental service. On top of that, the company also stated that they won’t be purchasing the rights for any current season TV shows.
So what are they looking into instead? 3D movie streaming.
That’s right — you won’t be able to continue watching newer episodes of shows like Futurama, but will instead be treated to the 3D versions of movies the “failing” video stores and major retailers had in stock months before.
