    Default Netflix changes price

    I think these changes go into effect next year (January) but I do find it interesting that these announcements are made after the USPS makes the proposal to stop delivering mail on Saturdays

    Hi, Jessie Becker here, VP Marketing, with an update about changes we are making today to our plans and prices.

    First, we are now offering a new $7.99 a month plan which lets you instantly watch unlimited TV episodes and movies streamed to 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.

    This makes me wonder how long is it before

    A. New movies get released directly to netflix/TV's

    or

    B. Netflix goes under because of cable VOD libraries (probably sooner, but still a ways away)

    Netflix Chnaged their prices on the DVD deliivery in an attempt to drive customers to the streaming service. It's cheaper for them, and much more profitible.

    Netflix however did mention that they were adding more of their popular DVDs to their steaming library.

    I'm cool with this. I say I get one DVD rental every 3 months anyway.

    Same here. I never remember to send them back and 99% of my Netflix usage comes online.

    My only issue with streaming is it doesn't look as good as a BD, and it doesn't come close with regards to audio.

    But when I'm watching anything where I don't care about that, it's fantastic. And even when I do, it's more than tolerable.

    They're adding slightly more, but the major studios aren't giving them new content for streaming. It's fun to track the Netflix top 100 to see how many of these movies are available for streaming.

    I think I am showing my age. I still like getting in the car, going to a video store, looking through all the videos and deciding right then what I am in the mood for. Sure I can send for in mail, but who knows if I'll feel like watching it when I get it, and typically I want to watch it right away not tomorrow or the next day.

    Buck, I feel the same way. But I have a netflix subscription and recently started streaming the online stuff through the Wii.

    While their selection is more limited, the streaming option gives you the chance of trying something totally different and just bailing after 15 minutes if it is really bad. At the video store I always seem to make the safest choice so as not to blow the $$$$s.

    Also there are good documentaries and nature-related stuff which I like and probably would not pay fo at a video store, for since the wife and kids are not so enthusiastic and would nix it in the store, but even they seem to like it when it is streaming on the screen.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    That's why you get 2+ DVDs out at a time and watch each one or none at your leisure.

    I havent used a video store in quite some time.

    Everything I do is Netflix streaming... Apple TV movie rentals... or Redbox Blu Ray dvd rentals.

    Every now and then I will rent a movie from netflix via snail mail.



    Hicks are you getting HD streaming?

    Yes, it streams HD when available. It's not nearly as good as a blu-ray disc, though. However, the picture is still pretty good.
