Last month Netflix decided to offer up an explanation for the massive price increases that have resulted in the loss of around one million subscribers to the movie rental service. Ever since the announcement that they would be raising their prices, the company has been battling some of the most ferocious criticisms ever seen, and desperately trying to figure out how they can calm the waters.
