Submission + - Netflix to Inflict Huge 60% Price Increase on Subs (netflix.com)

Nom du Keyboard writes: I just got notice that my current $9.99/month Unlimited DVDs (1-at-a-time) and Unlimited Streaming plan is now split. Now I must choose by September 1 between Unlimited DVDs (1-at-a-time) for $7.99/month (no streaming), or Unlimited Streaming for $7.99/month (no DVDs). Or I can have both – otherwise described as exactly what I have now – for only $15.98. This amounts to a 59.9% increase over my current plan. They must really believe that they have pricing power in this weak economy to try to get away with such a huge price increase since they would lose money from anyone who uses only one of their two services. So much for falling data transport prices making everything cheaper by the year.
