Netflix Offers Streaming-Only Service, Raises Rates on Other Plans

I got an email from my pals at Netflix today letting me know that my current package of unlimited streaming and 1 Blu-ray out at a time would experience a rate increase. They are only increasing it by $1, so it’s not that big of a deal in my opinion. I am extremely satisfied with their service, and don’t mind paying the extra dollar. There was another piece of information in the email, however, that caught my eye.

Netflix is now offering a streaming-only package for $7.99/month. I am assuming this is to compete with Hulu Plus, which is equally priced at $7.99/month.

If you don’t have Netflix, I would definitely suggest giving the streaming service a try. I use it as my primary source of entertainment on my television. Heck, I don’t even have cable, and I believe Netflix streaming is the reason that I can survive.

Has anyone tried Hulu Plus? I’m interested in the service, but don’t want to commit just yet, not even for a free trial.
