Netflix has raised its subscription prices again. It was expected to happen as they haven’t raised prices since 2020. Hey, everything else right now is more expensive. And they also have to pay for those next two Red Notice sequels they recently announced! That first movie cost $200 million, so sequels will be even more expensive.
In the U.S., subscribers to Netflix’s basic plan, which will get you one stream on one screen at a time and does not have HD streaming, will now be charged $9.99 a month, which is a dollar more. As for the standard plans, which allow for users to stream on two screens at the same time — now cost $15.49 per month, which is an increase from $13.99, while premium plans have moved up to $19.99 a month.
The price changes will go into effect in the next coming weeks. Subscribers will receive an email and in-app notification 30 days in advance of when the new prices will take effect.
These aren’t huge price increases, but I imagine the price hikes will keep coming over time.
