Netflix Raises Price of DVD Mail Service by 66%

NETFLIXNetflix will raise the price for the DVD mail service.

Changes will take effect in September for old customers, but already in effect for new customers.

What used to cost $10 a month for online rentals of movies plus one DVD by mail will now cost $16.
Video on demand streaming will remain at $8 a month. Netflix has advertised the change as a “new” choice for consumers.

Many Netflix customers depend on the DVD by mail service because certain blockbuster movies are available much faster on physicals DVDs before they are available as video on demand.

The trend is clear though, physical DVDs might be coming to end in near future, while video on demand services will grow rapidly over the next years.
