Netflix Announces New DVD & Streaming Plans

Netflix announced new plans today moving forward. The company is increasing the price of its previous $9.99 a month plan with which subscribers were able to get unlimited streaming and one DVD at a time.

Netflix Inc. announced today it is launching new unlimited DVD-only plans in the U.S. at their lowest price ever– only $7.99 a month for the 1 DVD out at-a-time plan and $11.99 a month for the 2 DVDs out at-a-time plan.

New members can sign up for these plans by going to

Netflix also announced it is separating its unlimited streaming and unlimited DVD plans in the U.S. to better reflect the costs of each and to give members a choice: a streaming-only plan, a DVD-only plan or the option to subscribe to both.

With this change, Netflix will no longer be offering unlimited plans that include both streaming and DVDs by mail. The unlimited streaming plan will remain at $7.99 a month. The price for getting both unlimited streaming and unlimited DVDs will be $15.98 a month ($7.99 + $7.99).

For new Netflix members, the changes will be effective immediately. For existing members, the new pricing will start for charges on or after September 1.

One thought on “Netflix Announces New DVD & Streaming Plans

  1. While I enjoy Netflix streaming of films- the selection, in general, honestly, is pretty poor. IF you are picky about what you sit down to watch.

    And since most of the more popular TV series are readily available on DVD anyway, I’ll drop the streaming and wait til my favorite series go to DVD.

    For those who prefer streaming, maybe drop the DVD option and switch to REDBOX.

    If I still want streaming myself?- there is always HULU (it may have limited commercials but it’s NOT 7.99) (yet)
