New Netflix Pricing Structure Breakdown

A Breakdown of the New Netflix Pricing Structure

Attention Netflix users: your movie addiction may be getting a bit more expensive.

Earlier today, Netflix announced a price increase to its DVD/streaming combo plans, essentially separating them into two different plans altogether. Netflix says that it has to raise prices in order to stay competitive in the market, but mostly because the company didn't realize there was still such a high demand for DVDs. But since not all titles are available for streaming, it makes sense that movie watchers would still need to send out for a disc every once in a while. The changes will affect current Netflix members beginning Sept. 1, while the new pricing structure will be available for new members immediately. Check out the pricing and plan breakdowns below.

  • Unlimited streaming — $7.99
  • Unlimited DVD, one DVD out at a time — $7.99
  • Unlimited DVD, two DVDs out at a time — $11.99
  • Unlimited streaming and DVD, one DVD out at a time — $15.98

What do you think of the new Netflix plans?

Since a lot of things I watch aren't available in both DVD and streaming and some series are just to many DVDs, I'll have to go with the new combo pricing

I don't see the big deal. It's what, an extra $6-10—at the most?

I wouldn't mind it so much if they actually had half the things I want to watch as things you could stream, and if they didn't just suddenly take things off the streaming list. It's like they are forcing you to pay $16 if you want to watch over half their collection but enjoy the convenience of streaming. If they consistently kept things for streaming and opened up their full library for it., I really wouldn't mind. As it stands this is just a slap in the face to customers IMO. They should AT LEAST have a combined option that's cheaper or grandfather in old accounts at discounted prices...

Such lameness on their behalf. I might ditch the thing all together. I haven't really used it in while. I'm backed up on watching shows on hulu right now.

Yepp, definitely getting rid of my DVDs. I've had the same one for a few months, I mostly just use the streaming. :/

What?! Well, I guess I'll be chucking over $16 a month. I do love my unlimited streaming...
