Netflix to add Blu-ray fee

Unlimited access to cost an additional $1

Netflix on Wednesday said it will begin adding $1 to monthly membership fees to provide unlimited access to high-definition Blu-ray movies.

In an e-mail to subscribers, Netflix said the additional charge, to reflect the higher cost of Blu-ray discs, will be automatically added to billing statements on or after Nov. 5.

Subscribers who do not wish to get Blu-ray access must adjust their accounts through the Netflix Web site.
