  • Netflix raises rates, irks subscriber

    SAN FRANCISCO — Netflix has provoked the ire of some of its 23 million subscribers by raising its prices by as much as 60 percent for those who want to rent DVDs by mail and watch video on the Internet.
    The company is separating the two options so that subscribers who want both will have to buy separate plans totaling at least $16 per month. Netflix Inc. had been bundling both options in a single package, available for as low as $10 per month.
    New subscribers will have to pay the new prices immediately. The changes take effect Sept. 1 for Netflix’s current customers.
