Rumor: Netflix Dropping Price Again - 2nd Time in Three Months!

UPDATE: It's no longer a rumor. The AP has a story saying that Netflix is testing lower prices with select (not all) customers.
"Netflix is always testing prices. Some members, a small fraction of our
total 6.7 million members, have been notified of a lower price on some of their
plans. It is not across the board and it was not announced by the company. It is
simply a price test," a company spokesman told The Associated Press.

A Blogger is reporting that he received an e-mail from Netflix saying his Unlimited 2 DVD's out at a time service is being lowered from 13.99 to 12.99 per month effective August 16th. I can't confirm since I'm on the Unlimited 1 DVD out at a time service and did not receive the e-mail. He did include a shot of his e-mail. We'll find out tomorrow if this is for real.
