Netflix Waives Streaming Restrictions

I was waiting for this to happen, and apparently it’s coming Monday:

SAN FRANCISCO – Girding for a potential threat from Apple Inc., online DVD rental service Netflix Inc. is lifting its limits on how long most subscribers can watch movies and television shows over high-speed Internet connections.

Up until the change, users were limited by the cost of their subscription. (The popular $17 per month subscription yielded 17 hours of online streaming.)

The current library of films available to stream isn’t that impressive yet (especially the horror genre), but I was just given the reason I was looking for to keep my subscription as I haven’t been renting as many films by mail as I did when I first joined. There’s a great selection of foreign films and it will only be a matter of time before the rest of the library is expanded.
