Netflix: We Can Murder Your Account With No Notice At Our Whim

It’s amazing what we agree to every day when we scroll through infinite screens of dense legalese to click the box that said we’ve read and agree to abide by the terms of service on various sites. Brandon discovered that Neftlix users have all consented for the company to stop its endless supply of movie and TV shows for any reason whatsoever.

Brandon quotes the Netflix Terms Of Use:

Right to Terminate

“We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your use of our service, without notice, for any or no reason whatsoever. “

Really? For no reason whatsoever? From one lawyer to Netflix lawyers: This appears to be a case of lawyers gone amok!

So remember, as you’re streaming 30 Rock tonight, if someone at Netflix deems that it should cut off your service at random because he girlfriend left him and he’s bitter, it’s all good under Netflix law.

UPDATE: The moderator has let us know that people are interpreting this as if Phil actually objects to the language. He doesn’t, it’s fairly standard. We just think the idea of Netflix terminating your account for “no reason whatsoever,” is humorous.
