About every Netflix user we've talked to have stated something similar along the lines of: "Man, I really wish Netflix would offer me a cheaper disc-less plan." Yeah, we hear ya. These days where broadband is as prevalent as peanuts, most can get by with near 720p streaming with no choke on their home networks. Kinda makes the whole notion of physical media seem dated, no?
Well, luckily Netflix has already started considering the option, giving our neighbors up north a taste of a streaming-only portion from Netflix before bring it to the U.S. in the next coming months. Because its current pricing structure charges its fees based on the number of DVDs you can be loaned at one time, killing the disc-by-mail service altogether would significantly reduce the cost of service.
