Netflix to offer streaming-only subscriptions next year

With Netflix streaming showing up all over the place these days, it's no wonder that some customers are more interested in the streaming than in the traditional DVDs-by-mail service. And those people will be taken care of, starting next year.

Yes, Netflix is planning to offer a streaming-only package as early as the end of this year. It's all pretty fuzzy at the moment, but as Netflix adds more and more content to their streaming service and more hardware offers it up, this sort of thing will become more and more attractive. After all, DVDs have a very finite lifespan, while digital streams and downloads are the future. Nice thinking, Netflix.
