Netflixenglish speaking movies

Netflix is beginning to trend to movies that do NOT have an option to hear them in English. You can have the English subtitles, but when you go to audio, there is NO option to hear the movie in English. I called them about this and after speaking to someone who just couldn't understand my problem, I asked to speak to their supervisor. She listened to my complaint and then promptly hung up on me.

If Netflix is going to trend toward not having English EVEN AS AN OPTION for the audio, they will lose customers. Very frustrating!!!

    Hi! Erik from netflix here!

    At Netflix we strive to have conrent for everyone! Not content everyone can listen to because not every person on earth speaks the same language. Instead there are thousands of different languages spoken on earth. One of our most popular being Japanese. Japanese animation is so beautiful, but it is sometimes hard to translate and redub a film or movie without it costing thousands of dollars.

    If you do not like the fact that a title is in english, perhaps try watching one of our hundreds of thousands of shows that are in english including our lovely selection of children's programming that teaches we should be tolerant of everyone, no matter the language they speak. Perhaps you should brush up on that.

    If you are so badly needing to watch a program in english, perhaps learn how to enjoy reading and live with the subtitles, or learn another language, as its proven to increase IQ. Clearly you need that, because your world view is about as bland as your name is, Ms. Smith, and a few extra points wouldn't hurt anyone.

    I'm going to say it.. She probably hung up on you because you were coming off like an elitist, self entitled, American... (Just to be clear, I'm an american as well, and white, if you're a supremacist as well as arrogant..)

    You have to realize Netflix is ALSO catering to other countries... Other races... With different base languages.. Movie production companies don't create English dubbing for every foreign film ever made.. Also, how bout a little cultural enrichment? It might be good for you to break away from feeling like 'merican English is the only language in existence.. :D
