Netflix, while once the single largest provider of online movie rentals, has quite a bit of competition coming its way these days.

Blockbuster lowered their subscription fee as well, undercutting Netflix & also offered 2 free in-store rental coupons per month and a free DVD to new subscribers. Netflix is responding to these new threats by adding a feature for subscribers to share movie choices. Woohoo.
