Streaming and rental service Netflix has hiked prices for its top package for US subscribers. It has ditched its top-tier package, which allowed customers to stream an unlimited amount of content and receive an unlimited number of movies and TV series by mail. That US$10 (7) package is replaced by separate streaming and mail packages at US$7.99 apiece Â effectively a 60% price increase for subs that want to access the same service.
Netflix said it was splitting streaming and mail services to Âbetter reflect the costs of each and give members a choiceÂ.â¨
Netflix customers reacted angrily, posting numerous negative comments on social networks and relevant websites.â¨The change takes effect immediately for new subs and from September for existing customers. Netflix has launched in Canada and will soon roll out in Latin America.
