With lots of new titles such as Breakfast At Tiffanys being added on New Year’s Day, now seems like a perfect time for Netflix to test new, cheaper streaming options for some users in the UK and US.  The service has been offering a selection of new customers a third pricing option after their free trial period expired.

These lucky customers can choose a $6.99 per month plan that allows for one stream at a time per account in standard definition, as opposed to $7.99 for two streams.  For the lucky few Brits included Netflix’s trial, the price drops a measly 70 pence from £5.99 per month to £5.29 instead.  There is also a higher priced option for multiple high definition streams

Although Netflix has said they have no long term plans for the different pricing options, 2014 may bring more consumer-friendly options to online streaming.
