New Netflix Family Plans: £8 for Four Simultaneous Streams

By Kyle Wagner on at

Oh, hey, Netflix is getting wise, finally. In its quarterly money-talking-numbers session, CEO Reed Hastings let out that Netflix is going to introduce a new $12 (£8-odd) per month plan for families that lets them stream four shows at once. The old £6 plan has a limit of two simultaneous streams.

Some other interesting facts from the past quarter are that a sort-of-but-not-really-astounding 8 million people still pay for the DVD service from Netflix in the US, just like original LoveFilm plans here in the UK. And House of Cards doesn't really seem to have given it the spike in users it was hoping for, as it added just 2.03 million users compared to 2.05 million in the previous quarter. [Netflix]
