pill geneva, stuff sans-serif;”>Starting September 1st Netflix will begin a new pricing policy. Netflix will separate the unlimited streaming and unlimited DVDs into to separate plans. Currently if you are on this plan you're paying $9.99 per month. Under the new pricing unlimited streaming will be $7.99 and unlimited DVDs will be $7.99. If you would like to keep both the price will increase to $15.98 per month ($7.99 + $7.99).  

You will be automatically upgraded to the new plan unless you go to the Plan Change page in Your Account and change itFor me this is a great option because I only use Netflix for streaming anyway, but if you would still like to get DVDs in the mail I would recommend Blockbuster. They get new movies before Netflix and if you still have a store near by you can do in-store exchanges (depending on your plan). So what do you think of this pricing change?

    It’s not a good deal because you had the option of stream or DVD at $9.99. I agree I prefer the streaming, but I hate having to choose. I may just switch to Blockbuster since the Netflix option I had is less than $15.

    See for me its a no brainer. I stream show through my HTC Evo and my PS3. I like the instant access better. Now I do use Blockbuster for dvd’s.

    I was expecting this to happen. Although it seems like a big jump, it really isn’t considering the service.

    I think I will be looking for a way to get streaming. After summer though. We are so busy this time of year that we actually put our account on hold.

      I would recommend using the PS3. It has a powerful processor and you can use it for Hulu also. I bought a Blu Ray DVD player with the ability to stream for my bed room , but it doesn’t work well at all. PS3 makes it easy. Thanks for stopping by!

    The contract they got for all these movies was 200 million and now the contract is up so there are increasing costs. Apparently their new contract is going to be somewhere in the lines of 2 billion dollars haha! This is the real reason your prices are going up.
