  1. Why has Netflix postponed the release of Matilda til next year. Recent info told us that it would drop on Christmas Day but now we are told it will drop across the world except the UK. This is a disgrace. I’m paying for Netflix yet my country is excluded. Why ? I am going to cancel my subscription and I hope many uk customers will follow. Outrageous.

  2. Ridiculous. Absolute joke. Why promise today and then change it. Total money grabbing. Once again I would have cancelled had subscription not been in my tv package
