Netflix Raises DVD Plan Prices & Launches $7.99 Per Month U.S. Streaming-Only Plan
This has been the worst kept secret for a while, as Netflix officially unveils their $7.99 streaming-only plan. Netflix has an awesome collection of pretty good quality streaming shows and movies, and their CEO has confirmed on several occasions that streaming is definitely the way they are looking for the future. What I didn’t see coming was the increase in price for those who still want a disc. Still reasonable, but something to note as they may just price their customers into using the streaming more. I wonder how people who just want rentals and don’t want to stream feel?
Why the changes? Our selection of TV episodes and movies available to stream has grown dramatically, and as a result most members want us to deliver unlimited TV episodes and movies two ways: streaming instantly over the internet plus DVDs by mail. The price increase will allow us to continue to offer the popular plan choice of unlimited TV episodes and movies streaming instantly along with unlimited DVDs. The new plan, which does not include DVDs, is a great option for the increasing number of members who only want to watch instantly. The $7.99 a month price reflects no DVD shipping costs on this plan.
