Quick Note: Netflix Rolls Out $6.99 Single Stream Plan

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.

Oh I understand completely. Still doesn't make me happy to find out that 90's "Outer Limits" isn't available for streaming because some bloated fatcat thinks that he can make more $$$ off the library by letting it sit unused for all but the extreme die-hards who keep buying DVD's. And while I do appreciate what's available, I don't get why the content owners keep playing keep-away. I get that the big-bang theory isn't available for streaming (even the early seasons) because it's still on TV. Fine (even though that doesn't explain "how I met your mother" being available).
It just seems to me like Netflix needs more persuasive lawyers to plead their case to the content owners.
