Netflix testing a single user subscription for $6.99 Netflix has confirmed that it is testing a single-user standard definition streaming plan that will cost $6.99 per month.
The standard streaming plans cost $7.99 per month and allow users to to watch SD and HD streams on two devices at one time.

TechCrunch notes that the plan will likely be used primarily by smartphone users, where an SD stream will not make too much of a difference from an HD stream given the smaller screen.

Netflix does say that while it is testing the service, there is a chance that it will not go live for everyone.

Worthless. It's not like Netflix "HD" is actually even HD, after all.

Completely useless. Make it $3.99 and then might be worth something but, only $1 less? come on...

For $1 a month less it seems rather pointless...unless they work it so their hd-only content is converted to SD...then I can maybe see it just to save 4G bandwidth.
