Netflix to reshuffle streaming, DVD service plans

Netflix today announced changes to its streaming and DVD-by-mail plans that will see users paying more for combined service. The company’s new DVD-only plans now start at $7.99 per month for the one DVD at a time plan, and $11.99 per month for the two DVD at a time plan. Gone is the $9.99 combined streaming + one DVD plan; users will now need to subscribe to both the $7.99 streaming plan and the $7.99 one DVD plan to receive the same service, for a combined monthly total of $15.98. The changes are effective immediately for new customers; current customers will see the new pricing structure take effect on September 1. [via Engadget]
