How to Set Up Blu-ray With Netflix

By J.M. Chanel

Netflix began as a DVD-by-mail rental service. Netflix has since expanded options for members to receive its movies by adding the "Watch Instantly" streaming video section and also offering movies on high-definition Blu-ray discs through its rental-by-mail service. Movies and TV shows on Blu-ray discs offer twice the picture resolution as standard DVDs. Paid Netflix members can add Blu-ray access to their account, but will incur an additional $2 monthly fee to their Netflix bill, as of May 2011.
