Something to compete with all the other companies is good for them. It seems like every service provider is trying to come out with something to compete with Netflix. The company I have my streaming service with is DISH. I have the Blockbuster@home service on my account and I only pay $10 a month for it. The cool thing about this service is that I get DVD’s, streaming, and so much more. This is a really good deal and I love that I only have one bill for all my entertainment choices. A co-worker at DISH even told me that I could use my streaming service on my iPad now. It really is better than anything I have ever had and I know streampix will not be able to beat that.
