Netflix Prices Go Up Again
Getting ready for Stranger Things Season 2? It'll cost you a bit more to watch than Season One.
As of Thursday October 5, Netflix subscriber prices increased.
The lowest-tier plan won’t change, according to Business Insider, but the “standard” plan, which is the most popular on Netflix, will go up from $9.99 to $10.99 per month. The high-tier plan which features 4K and four simultaneous streams will go up from $11.99 to $13.99. Subscribers will start being notified about the change by October 19 and will see the price hikes go into effect in their next billing cycle.
It's been two years since Netflix's last price increase. Despite the raise in cost, Netflix still costs less than cable, and aims to keep increasing the output of original content.
Is an extra buck going to make you cancel your Netflix account? Not me! Literally, the only thing keeping me from cutting cable entirely is live sports; if Netflix figured out a way to let me watch the Yankees and Giants, I'd ditch my cable provider in a heartbeat. Even if they doubled their price to $20/month, it's still cheaper than my cable bill.
