You still have to have a Netflix membership, which here in the States is ~$10/mo. for the most basic plan.

Apparently, when you try to start Netflix with the disc today (Oct. 18th) a message pops up and indicates that the disc will stop working in 31 days. You are given an option to update or continue and have the system remind you later.
