I have heard rumors for several months that this was going to happen. In fact, Netflix announced it in April.
But today I got the official e-mail notification from Netflix.
The price of memberships for rental of Blu-ray discs is being raised in order to offset the higher cost of Blu-ray discs.
How much of an increase?
$1 per month.
I'm okay with that. They could have done much, much worse.
