Netflix Tacks on $1 Surcharge for Blu-ray Movies - News and Analysis by PC Magazine:

"Just in case Sony's uphill battle for market domination hasn't already been enough of a struggle, Netflix has made the life of the Blu-ray a bit less sweet. The online movie rental site today announced that it would be adding a $1-per-month fee for access to its Blu-ray library.

The notice was sent out in an email to Netflix susbscribers on Wednesday morning."

I unchecked the box. Blu-ray isn't worth even the miniscual $1.00 extra that Netflix wants. The pictures don't look much better, if at all, and I only have one machine that I can watch them on (as opposed to at least a dozen DVD compatible devices).

Hopefully Netflix will use the subscription information they get from this $1.00 surcharge to manage their Blu-ray collection. And hopefully we'll get a press release in a few months that says how few people want Blu-ray disks.
