If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you’ve probably already received a notice indicating the pricing and plan changes.
If you haven’t, it can be summarized as a discount for streaming-only customers, and a huge price hike (up to 60%) for people who like to get DVDs from them in addition to the streaming.
Our family happens to enjoy both, and evidently we’re not alone.
Since the emails started rolling out, Netflix has been taking a beating of “Dear Netflix – ” tweets, comments (38,007 as of this writing) on its Fan page, and overall really bad sentiment across the blogosphere and social media.
