Today, Netflix announces a streaming only plan for $7.99 per month. Consequentially, the cost other plans appear to be increasing by a dollar or so, depending on your plan. The plan announcement arrives on the heels of the recently announced Hulu Plus, which came out of the preview period earlier this week, also $7.99. Looks like a little healthy competition here, giving consumers more choice beyond cable and satellite. Score!
I love my Roku, and now that it has Hulu Plus for a measly $8/month you really have no reason not to get it. Roku is running an awesome black friday deal, so stay up til midnight playing Cataclysm or Assassins Creed or whatever it is that is striking your fancy this holiday and make a purchase that will save you money in the long run. The cable company is ripping you off and you don’t need that much TV, you’ll realize what you love most and support it better.
