These days, a Netflix account seems as essential as a toothbrush, although, nine out of 10 dentists would disagree with that statement. One dentist just likes to be contrary. Anyway, there's a bit of unfortunate news about your binge-material supplier: it's price is going up.
If you're still grandfathered in on Netflix's $7.99 HD plan, when your two-year subscription expires, you'll start paying $9.99 for that same plan later this year, according to a letter Netflix sent to to its shareholders. Now, if that extra $2 is just too much, you'll have the option of staying at $7.99, but on an SD plan. If you don't know what that means -- well, honestly, you can probably afford the $2 to stay at status quo. Once you're used to high definition there's really no going back.
