Netflix Is Raising Its Prices in the United States

This week the company announced that US-based customers subscribed to the middle and top tier plans would see a price increase from November onwards. Existing members will be notified of the price changes starting on October 19, with Netflix promising to notify subscribers at least 30 days in advance. Netflix is going to charge $13.99 for this beginning next month instead of $11.99.

But if you've signed up to watch two screens at the same time with occasional high definition (that's the 2S plan) then you're going to be billed €10.99 - an extra €1.

These $1 and $2 jumps will most likely be met with a shrug from most. It also comes after the streaming service made a major mark at September's primetime Emmys, taking home 20 awards. And it could be argued that with the wide array of quality content coming from Netflix, participants of the subscription are still getting a hell of a deal over traditional cable packages. You're practically stealing it. That said, Hulu and Netflix are still cheaper than the $15 monthly price tag on HBO accounts. CEO Ted Sarandos said earlier this year that Netflix plans to spend $7 billion on original content in 2018. Between countless stand-up specials, TV shows and films, that's a lot of dough to shell out. "The price change will roll out to members over the course of the next several months".

Last week it announced a partnership with ride-hailing app Lyft to look at how it could connect customers with self-driving cars. The future models would only offer 96 variations meaning less investment on the designing, making and storing of parts.

Excited for season two of Stranger Things to drop on October 27?

Most of the subscriber growth came from outside the U.S., where Netflix has invested heavily in establishing itself as a global television service.

The price change will roll out to US members over the course of the next several months, according to Netflix. As always, feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
