Netflix U.S. and Canada subscribers see price rise, addition of new plan As expected, and announced a bit earlier for the European and UK markets, new Netflix users will be seeing a price raise in the U.S. and Canada.
New subscribers will see their monthly bill at $8.99 compared to the current $7.99 and current users will keep their $7.99 price for two years, including HD video streams.

Additionally, Netflix will be offering a $7.99 plan where users can only stream in SD (standard definition) and only on device at any time. The more expensive plan allows for streaming on two screens simultaneously.

All new users get a free trial, and you can change between plans at any time.

Meh for what it's worth; not that big of a deal. If you got the bandwidth: still cheaper than cable.

If you somehow live somewhere where your broadband provider doesn't 1) meter, 2) doesn't throttle netflix, and 3) isn't so over subscribed that you never get 50% of your advertised speed.

I, like a huge portion of the rest of 'murica, fail on all 3 parts, and have no options because of the government enforced mon(duo)opoly.
