A couple weeks ago, I dropped our $20/month 3-discs-at-a-time-plus-unlimited-streaming plan to the $10/month 1-disc-at-a-time-plus-unlimited-streaming plan. I just got email from Netflix telling me that the cost for that plan will skyrocket by 60%, to $16/month, as of 1 September.
Our old plan will jump from $20/month to $24/month, a 20% price increase. For $20/month, we can now get streaming plus 2-discs-at-a-time, which may be what we change to. Or I may go back to the original 3-at-a-time plan.
Obviously, Netflix has decided that they really, really don’t want to be in the disc business. I just wish they had a $24/month plan for unlimited streaming of everything in their streaming and disc catalog. I’d go for that in a heartbeat.
