It's for new users only

Netflix is offering a new, cheaper single stream plan for new users (sorry, existing customers).

According to Adweek, Netflix has introduced a single-screen standard-definition stream plan for $6.99 per month, which is a dollar less than the two-stream high-resolution plan for $7.99 (which is what most customers use). 

The single stream plan is reportedly only available to new customers. A Netflix customer service representative said this is because the company is only testing it on a certain group for now, and while it could eventually roll out to larger audiences, Netflix isn't making any promises for now.

"We always are testing new things and this is a test for a $6.99 single stream plan," said a Netflix spokeswoman. "Not all people will see this option and it may not be something we ever offer generally."

Netflix has been trying to cut down the amount of password-sharing on its service by offering more attractive options. For those that need multiple screens, there's a third streaming option for four screens in high or standard definition for $11.99 per month. 

Netflix currently has 40 million subscribers.

content isn't free, Netflix has to pay $$ in a variety of ways for it. Some shows, such as old TV series might not be there becuase the $$ it would cost and how few people would watch, the ad revenue wouldn't be enough to pay for the $$$ to have that content available.
