Netflix: Blu-ray subscribers may find price increase

Netflix LogoInformationWeek has confirmed that Netflix is currently testing price increases for subscribers of Blu-ray Discs. The rate hike was announced in April, but now some subscribers are paying between $1 and $2 more per month.

This is a limited test for now and is not affecting all subscribers.

I hope this means they will start to focus on the high-def market more. I wouldn’t particularly like to pay more for Blu-ray Discs when I have to wait longer for them to be available in my queue. But I wouldn’t mind paying a little more to make sure the latest Blu-ray movies are available more often.
