We already knew full well that Netflix was getting antsy to throw a "Blu-ray premium
" onto accounts, but it looks like "very soon
" may really mean "within the next month." According to a tipster who just today signed up for a new account and added Blu-ray access, a message popped up at the completion of the transaction notifying him that a $1 per month charge (plus applicable taxes) would be added once his free trial concluded. Just a wild guess here, but we don't reckon you're bailing out on your rental plan over this, right?

, thanks Wesley]Update
: We're hearing that some folks are seeing a $2 per month charge. Selective pricing, hmm?
