You knew that a $1 premium for Blu-ray titles wasn't going to last forever. Citing an increase in demand, Netflix will be increasing their Blu-ray subscription price by around 20% starting on April 27th.

It's still a fairly good deal when you consider that a Blu-ray title costs around 30% more than a standard DVD—but that doesn't mean I have to be happy about it. The chart below illustrates how the fees will break down.

F*ck that. If they shipped me the movies I wanted to see on Blu Ray (mostly new release stuff) I'd be fine with it... but as it stands I have to wait weeks and weeks to get even moderately new releases. Waiting 4-5 weeks to see newer movies AND increasing my fees by a factor of 3?

Eat shit, Netflix. I just cancelled.
