Netflix changes plans, hikes prices

August 30, 2011

In July, Netflix announced it was separating its DVD by mail and instant streaming plans. It also announced a price increase, setting off a backlash from subscribers.

On September 1, Netflix ends its $10 a month plan that combined the two options. Starting Thursday, each plan will be offered separately for $8 or $16 for both.

Any Netflix customer who does not select a plan will automatically be enrolled in the combined subscription plan.
