With the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit having, in a Tuesday ruling, gutted the Federal Communication Commission's `Net Neutrality' regulations - which require Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to be neutral in their restrictions on bandwidth -, an analyst estimate shows that the move may expose the Netflix streaming video service to higher costs.
In a Monday announcement, video streaming service Netflix said that a lower-priced, single-stream tier - at a subscription fee of $6.99 per month - is being tested by the company, to a few select new subscribers.
The new $6.99-a-month pilot subscription tier delivers content only in standard-definition, and allows users to stream video to one screen at a time.
