Excellent Black Friday show guys, probably your best ever!

I have a question: currently I have a streaming-only Netflix plan. I thought I might fire up the one-disk-at-a-time plan for the holidays. However, the Netflix website only talks about "DVDs" and doesn't mention Blu-ray at all.

I went into: "Your Account" > "Your DVD Plan" > "Add DVD Plan"

There are three selections:

1 DVD $7.99 per month
2 DVDs $11.99 per month
3 DVDs $15.99 per month

Nothing about Blu-ray?

Hi Henry,

You can add the Blu-ray option in your settings. It adds a couple of dollars to the cost. But just a heads up, on many of the discs you only get DD 5.1.

Hey thanks Ara I will check it out!

Yeah, this trend of DD 5.1 on "rental" disks is very disturbing...
