More than 11,000 people have signed an online petition asking Disney to reconsider its decision to remove its shows and films from Netflix as it launches its own streaming service.

Their argument? Disney’s decision restricts the entertainment choices they can pick from on a limited budget.

“The move might make business sense for Disney, which is eager to get a piece of the streaming pie, but the people who power these businesses should be taken into account, too,” the petition, which was started by online organizing site Care2, says.

Americans are increasingly subscribing to multiple streaming services as more companies look for ways to capitalize on their popularity. Some customers are happy with the plethora of services available to them. This month alone, there have been at least three new streaming announcements, including Disney’s.

But for those looking for a one-stop-shop model, it is becoming harder to find, and the costs of separate subscriptions are adding up. Disney has not given details on how much its service would cost.
