Netflix doesn’t care if they keep you as a customer!

For the last few days I have noticed a Black Lives Matter ad popping up on my Netflix every time I open it. Since I believe this organization is not only bad but doing nothing to help the black community I get very frustrated when seeing it. Like most things, I thought maybe it would go away after a few days. By this morning I was ready to blow and wanted it gone. I contacted their support, thinking they would at least listen and send my complaint up to management. Instead “Cathy” copy and pasted some replies and basically told me she would be happy to cancel my service. This whole disagreement could have been resolved if they had just told me how to turn it off.

“Manage Profiles >> Edit Profiles >> Edit Maturity Settings >> Under Title Restrictions enter “Featured Collection” and click Save”

 Instead they spoke to me like my business didn’t matter to them. I am not going to convince you to do anything, just read over the conversations and decide for yourself. I have turned it off for now but I will be looking for another streaming app and most likely will be leaving Netflix.  I am just tired of these companies being political.

 “Your issue is: Stop with the BLM crap everything I open my app or I am cancelling my service! I don’t pay for this service so I can be lectured!

“We believe that one of the ways Netflix can have a direct impact is through our stories. The Black Lives Matter collection speaks to racial injustice and the Black experience in America – and we hope that highlighting these titles can help increase empathy and understanding.”

You

I should not have to click past it, to get to the home screen. Turn that part off or I will be cancelling it.

Netflix Cathy
