Netflix has cracked down on password sharing this year (the streaming service has a $12-per-month plan if you want to stream on four devices simultaneously), but it looks like there's a new tier to its pricing plan, albeit one available only to new users: you can now sign up for a single-screen standard-def stream for a dollar less than the hi-res, two-streams service most users are currently using.
The service's user base has grown by leaps and bounds this year—Netflix passed top-dog pay-TV network HBO's domestic sub count with a whopping 40 million subscribers of its own—and it makes sense that the company would seek to expand that base yet further by adding new price points to entice more users.
