Now you're really gonna hate those unwatched DVDs collecting dust on your kitchen table. In a move that's got us shaking our heads and muttering "Serenity now!" under our breath, word on the street is that Netflix is completely screwing things up for us frugal movie lovers by creating separate rates for their DVD and instant-streaming options.

Back in November, the powers that be at Netflix went ahead and upped their rates by anywhere from $1–$8 per month both to rent DVDs and have unlimited access to their instant-streaming catalogue. That was rough in its own right, but now it's going to cost $7.99 per month to rent out one DVD at a time and an extra $7.99 per month to have access to unlimited instant streaming. Yup, it will now cost you $16 per month to have both services going at the same time, and that is some tough cookies for all of us currently dishing out $10/month for that same level of access.
