NetFlix raises Blu-Ray content rental fees by A Dollar more

Early this year, Netflix has announced plan to increase Blu-ray titles and hinted the possibility of raising fees on monthly subscribers with Blu-ray renting option. The Blue-in-Red-Envelop subscribers are probably anxious to wait on the new rate, as if compatible to Blockbuster's option. The company has formally notified its rental customers of a fees increment according to engadget and what a relief for BD-content renters! Begin at November the 5th, the company will only post a small sub-charge of a dollar + tax per month for subscribers with unlimited Blu-ray movies.

As you may know, Blu-ray movies are more expensive than standard definition movies. As a result, we're going to start charging $1 a month (plus applicable taxes), in addition to your monthly membership charge, for unlimited access to Blu-ray movies.

The additional charge for unlimited Blu-ray access will be automatically added to your next billing statement on or after November 5th, 2008 and will be referenced in your Membership Terms and Details. If you wish to continue getting Blu-ray movies for $1 a month more, you don't need to do anything. If not, you can remove Blu-ray access anytime by visiting Your Account at the Netflix website.

If you have questions about this change or need any assistance, please call us anytime at 1-888-638-3549.
