    The title of the article appears to be incorrect. At the very end the actual limitation is explained, and it's just that they are now enforcing the 1 stream per disc portion of the contract. I'd test it, but I cancelled my streaming yesterday (the last day before my new contract would kick in). But I don't remember seeing any problem over the weekend (I'mon the 3-disk plan). (Edit) From the article: With Netflix imposing a 60% rate hike on the combined streaming and physical disc membership options, subscribers seeking multiple streaming access in the home now will have to pay accordingly. Two discs out at a time ($19.98 a month) will afford you streams on two devices, while the three-disc plan ($23.98) allows three streams, and four discs four streams from four devices at $29.98 a month.

    I don't get it. If you have the stream and disc option, they only allow you to stream as many as discs you have out? I have stream only plan and seem to still do multiple streams. I stated in the other thread that if it did come down to only being able to have 1 stream at a time, I would drop the stream option also. Here's hoping that does not happen.

    This is weird I thought this was discounted at one point.


    Ok, I just started it on 4 devices no problems. I only have a 1 disk plan.
