It's for new users only
Netflix is offering a new, cheaper single stream
for new users (sorry, existing customers).
, 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
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.
