Netflix Shortened Gift Subscriptions After Hiking Prices

Apparently Netflix is readjusting the length of gift subscriptions based on its new pricing plan. Have any of you ran into this? It might be a good time to check.

They figured that they didn't have to worry about canceling or changing their subscription until early 2012, though, because they had received a one-year subscription as a gift. Twelve prepaid months is twelve prepaid months, right? Nope. From Netflix's point of view, the gift giver didnt a fixed number of months for the coupleآ—he prepaid a certain amount of money, and the length of their subscription was readjusted once the price went up.
