  • A little more detail: There are now three options only - 1 disk at a time for $7.99 (unlimited number per month), unlimited streaming per month for $7.99, or both for $15.98. I'm not sure what deals the 2 or 3 disk at a time subscribers are getting.

    This is a harsh jump, especially for this long time subscriber. I remember when they went from $9.99 to $7.99 for single disk renters. They threw on the streaming for free. Only recently they jumped back up to $9.99. These are nice easy steps. For reference, I
    • The sincerest way of putting it is that they're doubling the cost! That's truely insane. If they're losing revenue on people using the hell out of streaming, then charge a fraction of a dollar per movie. If people are keeping the disks too long, start charging a penalty. If people keep getting disks because the movies they want to see aren't streamable, then charge for both services! ;-)

      Somethings going to get cut, and it won't result in extra revenue for Netflix.

To spot the expert, pick the one who predicts the job will take the longest and cost the most.
