More

Netflix revealed a new pricing plan that screws DVD-philes out of $7.99 per month. Currently, if you wanted unlimited DVDs and streaming, you paid $9.99. Now, if you would like to receive the occasional mail-order picks and also stream movies, you'll have to buy into two separate plans: $7.99 for DVDs and a another $7.99 for just their online offerings.

The company explains to customers that $7.99 is less then $9.99, meaning you're saving big, "These plans offer our lowest prices ever for unlimited DVDs -- only $7.99 a month for our 1 DVD out at-a-time plan ... By offering our lowest prices ever, we hope to provide great value to our current and future DVDs by mail members." Note the emphasis on savings.
