New Prices Announced For Netflix
For me, Netflix is my main source of movie and television entertainment, well, other than the Internet. I don't have cable, but rather just a Netflix account that allows me to stream movies or television shows and get 1 DVD at-a-time in the mail (unlimited) for under $10. Now, Netflix has announced some new pricing.
Announced on July 10, Netflix will offer a DVD-only plan for $7.99 a month for 1 DVD at-a-time. With that new pricing plan, the company is also splitting unlimited streaming and unlimited DVD plans. That means there is no longer a streaming/DVD combo. They're separate. Unlimited streaming will be $7.99 and the unlimited 1 at-a-time mailed DVD plan will also be $7.99. So, if you want both, it's $15.98.
Also, if you like more DVDs at one time, like two DVDs at-a-time, the price increases to $11.99. So, if you want two DVDs at-a-time and want streaming content, your bill will be just under $20.
For new subscribers, the prices are effective immediately. If you are a current subscriber, like myself, the prices don't go into effect until September 1.
