How Much Would You Pay For A Streaming-Only Netflix Account?

Canadian Nextflix subscribers had something to celebrate this week as the company launched a Streaming Only subscription option for just $7.99/month. With this users get no DVDs in the mail but access to all the on demand content they can watch. Currently there’s no equivalent subscription offer here in the U. S. — for $8.99 you can stream all you want and get 1 DVD a month — but Netflix is apparently considering it, according to this blog post.

I spend far more time watching on demand content from Netflix then maintaining my DVD queue these days, so I could definitely go for this. The price for streaming plus 1 DVD is already less than Hulu Plus (and contains no commercials), so I suspect the price will fall into the realm of the Good Deal. However, my hope would be something along the lines of $4.99, not $7.99. We’ll see how it shakes out.

In the meantime, what would you pay for a Streaming Only option for Netflix? And under what conditions? The recent announcement of more content from NBC is definitely a good thing, but movie hounds don’t have as much to choose from as those of us who mainly use the service to watch TV shows.
