Qwikster is dead already. That sounds drastic, but have you looked around the Internet today? Following Twitter threads prove people are already digging a grave for the "new" DVD-by-mail service. So is Netflix.
Back in July, Netflix announced they would be splitting up their streaming and DVD rental plans. If you wanted to keep one or the other, you’d end up saving money. But if you, like so many others, had come to enjoy both options, your monthly subscription would be increasing. A lot. A whole lot.
Because you need yet another device to stream Netflix, Nintendo's latest portable now officially supports the Internet's king of digital delivery. The free app is available now in the 3DS eShop, exclusive to the hardware.
Netflix made the announcement yesterday that a combo plan of one DVD out and streaming would run a customer $15.98 per month, an increase of 60% over their previous bargain bin pricing. This all kicks off September 1st.
