Netflix Sticks to Guns in Online DVD Rental Fight

Netflix shocked Wall Street last week by cutting its subscription prices to $17.99 from $21.99, and announcing it would run at break-even next year in order to fund a push to reach 4 million subscribers by the end of 2005.


The move prompted Blockbuster to undercut its main rival by slashing subscription rates for its two-month-old online service to $17.49 from $19.99.


I subscribe to Netflix...that would be welcomed price cut...since they just raised rates about 6 months I guess.
