There’s never been a better time to take advantage of your online/streaming capable TVs or Blu-ray players. Netflix just introduced changes to their monthly plans. First, they are launching new DVD only plans. These plans offer the lowest prices ever for unlimited DVDs – only $7.99 a month for 1 DVD out at-a-time plan and $11.99 a month for 2 DVDs out at-a-time plan. By offering their lowest prices ever, Netflix hopes to provide great value to their current and future DVDs by mail members. Unlimited streaming will cost $7.99 a month.
Netflix seems to be adapting themselves to provide more convenience and they have separated the plans to better reflect the costs of the separate services. Some people are upset by the change, as the old plan of $9.99 a month for both DVDs by mail and streaming will no longer exist, but both services can be combined for a total of $15.98 a month.
I for one, have seen Netflix streaming in person at my friends house and there isn’t anything more convenient that shuffling through an on-screen library of movies, choosing one and watching it instantly. It makes “Arnold Schwarzenegger and Beer” movie nights that much easier.
