We want to let you know about two important changes to the Netflix service.
1. The price of your current plan is changing from $8.99 a month to $9.99 a month. This new price will be effective with your next billing statement on or after January 2, 2011, and will be referenced in your Membership Details. With your current plan you can both instantly watch unlimited TV episodes and movies on your computer or TV and receive unlimited DVDs by mail.
2. We now also offer a new $7.99 a month plan which lets you instantly watch unlimited TV episodes and movies on your computer or TV. This plan does not include any DVDs. All the titles you can watch instantly on your current plan are also available on this new plan, and as a reminder, not all titles on DVD are available to watch instantly. This new plan is available immediately – if you'd like to switch to this new plan at any time, simply visit Your Account.
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 movies and TV episodes two ways: streaming instantly over the internet plus DVDs by mail. The price change 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.
It is about time these jerks included an unlimited streaming only plan. And its a dollar cheaper per month than what I was paying before! I went and made the switch immediately. Gotta send my back DVD now, but I am jazzed about this. I bought an Apple TV a month or two ago specifically for Netflix streaming to my TV (I know there's other options, this is what I went with). I just hope they keep expanding the library (it seems like they've stagnated a bit on that front lately, or Apple TV doesn't update the new arrivals screen that well).
mine is like 19 now with two DVDs and blu-ray privileges
that is me switching just now
And projeck, I never watched the DVDs. The DVD I have now is still unopened.
Someone inspired Netflix some profit here.
As a Netflix user, I've seen most of the films- I would like to see on Instant.
I now use more dvds unless there is a new instant release that is worth watching.
They will probably hook in more customers who will eventually feel the same.
Who they then can offer the dvd plans.
Because not everything is streaming

i love it
But then, I watch a ton of Netflix, so it's not hard for me to go through the good movies on their catalog.
Considering bumping it down to 3 (or maybe even less) at a time, because now I realize I don't go through dvds very quickly anymore.
They don't have enough on streaming at this point for that
My thought exactly. It will be nice when most of their catalog is streaming, but we're still a ways from that.
I like Netflix for HD streaming of old shows I've already seen
Whereas the one DVD I had out that was required for the plan (The Last Picture Show) has been sitting on my desk for months, unopened.
Guess this is a signal to finally watch it and then send it back and switch plans.
definitely. but it is nice to be able to see movies that you would not waste a shipment on in nice pretty HD.
and as far as HD streaming goes, I think Netflix is the best.
BUT i believe we can all agree that the quality of STARZ streams is just the worst
We should do an Xbox Netflix party and watch Jackie Chan Adventures one of these nights.
Probably gonna give them a while to update their catalog before I sign back up
I love netflix though just because they pretty much drove blockbuster out of business. Fuck you Blockbuster
But it does have some awesome TV... i watched all of Avatar because of netflix.
everyone should watch that instead of complaining about anything
Also it has Rocko's Modern Life and a few other old Nickelodeon shows
Waiting patiently for Salute Your Shorts, Welcome Freshmen and Hey Dude
again, already seen it
(everyone should see it... botp repost)
YES THIS IS A THING WE SHOULD DO
hey satan...: thinkgeek amazon My post |
Eh, $1 a month doesn't amount to much of an increase.
ok, richie rich.
i personally would downgrade to just streaming but my parents use the dvds so
I'm talking about my wife and myself but upon reading the above sentence it almost comes off like Venom discussing his Netflix subscription.
Do I have you on my Xbox friends list yet?
WE ARE TOO BUSY FIGHTING SPIDER-MAN TO WATCH LOVE, ACTUALLY TONIGHT
MAYBE TOMORROW WE WILL TREAT OURSELVES TO A NIGHT IN
Isn't that only for Starz Play movies?
