Well I am not to happy about this one. Apparently starting September first Netflix will be charging streaming services and dvd rental separate now. Each will now cost $7.99 instead of both for $9.99 which means if you want both its going to cost you $15.98 a month. I dont like the idea of that since I am on a fixed income already and I dont have any other rental places in my city. Looks like I am just going to be visiting "other sites" for my movies from now on. So what do you guys think? Are you guys mifed about this change as well?

Switches to stream only
I'd be fine with this if they added more new releases to streaming as well as DVD

We're switching to the streaming only plan. I remember reading an article about netflix planning to drop dvds anyway in the next few years, maybe this is the first step.

Yeah thats what I was thinking the only time I use the DVDs is for new releases that I missed in theaters. I actually make more use out of the streaming than the DVD rentals. And as I said if I really want the movies on discs there are other ways I can go about gettng them on Discs. I just hate the fact that they are making you choose one or the other.

http://www.tested.com/news/how-much-netflix-spends-on-instant...This may have something to do with rising costs. When Netflix started instantly streaming content, they got great deals on licensing the content. Now that streaming has taken off, studios want more money for their movies and shows. Considering streaming movies is what is going to cost Netflix more, why are they raising the price on the dvd plans?

doesn't matter to me — we didn't use the DVD rental part of it anyway, just the streaming.

I guess I'll be switching to streaming only.

Really? Complaining about a completely optional $6 increase, with an alternative option for a $2 reduction in service cost? Drink one less coffee per month. Problem solved.
Consumers really are so entitled these days. Heaven forbid a company try and stay profitable.

@Wildvine53: Yeah that makes sense especially with other streaming services like Hulu around companies are going to play the fields so to speak and in the end it means higher prices to the consumer.
@WaltzElf: For me that $6 is a big difference I dont have the luxury of special coffees or anything like that so yeah I am going to complain. With todays economy six bucks is alot to people for me thats nearly 2 gallons of gas to get me to school and work.

@WaltzElf: They have 23 million subscribers. The least someone can pay is 7.99 a month. So they are making at least 183,770,000 a month, or 2,205,240,000 a year. Surely they are making plenty of profit off of that. Sounds like greed to me.

@ Project-LYou do realize the eShop video player isn't going to have full length movies right?

@Tasuki. Do people actually still watch movies? When was the last time a movei came out worth watching? Na, I am with you man. I am going to cancel my Netflix subscription. I would rather play video games than watch movies anyway. My wife is the only one that uses it really and she does not like paying for price increases. haha...
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

@Ryno: Then main movies I watch nowadays are the must see ones like Thor, Harry Potter, Green Lantern, PotC etc and most of those I try to see in theaters on their budget day which for me at the local theater in my town is everyday the first showing costs $3.50 a person. A waaaay better deal than $10 bucks a person.
However there are a few that I missed and the only way I can get a chance to watch them is by renting them from Netflix since I cant really afford $20 on every new movie that comes out. Now it looks like I wont even get that. .

I'm judging them base on their online service.Nintendo is not going to charge 2 extra dollars on downloadable games. It ain't gonna happen.

@Project-L: LOL. No they won't charge 2 extra dollars. They will set their prices at a high price to begin with. And Netflix and the eShop are two completely different things.

@ TasukiYou do have to sign up and become a member for full access.I'm pretty sure it's legal though.They must get their funds from somewhere since it's free.
again, there is no way that place is on the up-and-up offering brand new movies for download... movies that aren't even available on DVD, movies that are still in theaters for crying out loud. please stop bringing it up, piracy is against the Rules. thank you :3
