Netflix has just added a streaming-only option, but it’s not available to all US subscribers. Formerly it was available in Canada. But we can expect potentially available in the US by the end of the year
It was also heard that some subscribers are already being offered the disc-free option for $7.99. Notice I said, “Some,” because here in SoCal, I’m still being offered the same old options from Netflix as of Saturday night.
The streaming-only option works on Apple devices like iPad, iPhone, Apple TV and computers, plus Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, Roku and PlayStation 3. It looks like Netflix is ready to capitalize on the growing popularity of mobile devices and is adapting to the viewing habits of its customers.
We’ll keep up with how this program rolls out to Netflix customers across the country.
