The Netflix Changes, Great Idea or Piece of Crap?

"Jessie Becker, here to share two significant changes at Netflix with you. First, we are launching new DVD only plans. These plans offer our lowest prices ever for unlimited DVDs - only $7.99 a month for our 1 DVD out at-a-time plan and $11.99 a month for our 2 DVDs out at-a-time plan. By offering our lowest prices ever, we hope to provide great value to our current and future DVDs by mail members. New members can sign up for these plans by going to DVD.netflix.com."
My vote is for piece of crap. I would be swayed to say great idea if everything in the library was offered as streaming, however it isn't. What this means is I have to pay $5.00 more ($8.00 USD if I want Blu-Ray) to get the same amount of service I was getting with my 2 DVD plan. Granted, that is not a lot of money, but it still irks me since in order to get the entire library I have to have a combination plan. What are your thoughts on this change?
