Netflix Price Plans

for DVD & Blu-ray rentals by mail, and instant streaming service


article last updated on 11.24.2010   

Editor's Note: On November 22, 2010, Netflix announced a new streaming "unlimited" plan for $7.99/mo, without any DVD rentals by mail. They also increased the prices of the "unlimited" DVD rentals-by-mail plan.

"Unlimited" Plans:

Netflix's "Unlimited" Plans offer:

  • Exchange DVDs as frequently as you want: as soon as Netflix receives your returned DVD, they will mail out another DVD on the same day.  Because Netflix has numerous regional shipping centers throughout the country, most customers get their DVDs through the mail in one day.

  • Blu-ray disc rentals with slightly extra cost per month.  This allows you to upgrade to Blu-ray disc if the movie/tit offers the Blu-ray option.  If not, you can still rent the DVD version.

  • Unlimited instant streaming of 20,000 movies and TV shows

The subscription price depends on the number of discs out at-a-time.
