In 2010, streamed videos outnumbered DVD rentals for the first time in Netflix's history. This trend is expected to continue as Netflix recently expanded its Watch Instantly service to Canada and is preparing "streaming only" subscription plans for U.S. customers. More than ever, subscribers are turning to sites like Streamingsoon.com for more information on streaming video.
In the past, Streamingsoon.com (http://www.streamingsoon.com)
was a niche website that highlighted popular and odd titles added to Netflix's streaming video service. As of October 26, 2010, the site expanded its focus and now helps Netflix subscribers by providing names and release dates of all movies and TV shows that will be added to Watch Instantly. Upon visiting http://www.streamingsoon.com, users are given information on all titles that will be added to Watch Instantly in the next seven days. A drop down menu in the sidebar lets visitors discover all titles that Netflix plans to stream within their favorite genres, regardless of release date.
With this newly expanded content, Streamingsoon.com has become an important tool for Netflix subscribers increasing their use of streaming video.
