While I can’t vouch for their service as-of -yet, having recently abandoned the now overpriced and confusing mishmash that is Netflix AND Qwikster, this alternative streaming service BIGSTAR that is angling for my Netflix dollars by offering a one year membership for $7.99 with proof of Netflix cancellation is a really great deal.
Their regular annual membership fees start at a meager $34.99, which isn’t bad to begin with, but an entire year for $7.99 is almost too low to pass up. I was also pretty impressed to see that they had full seasons of the vastly underrated sci-fi series LEXX in their catalog, so that makes it more tempting!
Check out the full press release below, which includes details on the offer and links to the site. If you happen to have already used Bigstar, please drop your thoughts on the service in our comments section so that our other readers (and I) can make an informed decision.
