Netflix Raising Prices On Most Popular Plans

Miley Cyrus

Customers in the United States are poised for a rate increase across two of Netflix's three pricing tiers. Netflix's most expensive option allows users to stream different shows on four screens in 4K.

The standard service, which includes streaming on up to two screens at the same time, is increasing from $9.99 a month to $10.99 a month.

It will be the first time Netflix has implemented a price increase since October 2015. When exactly will Netflix prices start to increase?

If you aren't sure which plan you're subscribed to, just go to the "account" page on Netflix by mousing over your profile in the top right hand corner.

Netflix is among the biggest global players when it comes to online streaming content. The company has been coming out with a number of interesting shows produced as original content as well as roping in other popular shows and movies.

Netflix doesn't typically offer insight into the success or failure of its programming, but management has pointed to "Stranger Things" as a catalyst for subscriber growth.

However, there is a way to avoid paying more for Netflix...

Netflix subscriptions still came in far cheaper than traditional cable service packages.

The monthly cost of a basic plan in the UK will stay fixed at £5.99.

"This hypocrisy is appalling, and it should be deeply troubling to any importer of large, complex, and highly engineered products", it said.

Similarly, the premium tier plan that used to cost $11.99 a month saw a rise of $2 and will now cost $13.99.

Netflix has also had a mixed history of price increases. Others validated the service's value even at the new higher rates.

In 2017, 1,000 hours of original content has been added to the site, which has been attributed as the reason for the price hike. Several years ago, they separated the plans and nearly doubled the price.
