If you’re one of the many millions of people in the United States who subscribe to Netflix, pay attention. Netflix is raising prices again for subscribers in the United States.
The standard plan which allows subscribers to watch on two screens simultaneously will now cost $10.99 instead of $9.99. However, there is more.
Netflix is going to make two pricing tiers for U.S. subscribers more expensive starting next month. The standard tier we just mentioned gets a $1 increase. The premium tier is what you need if you want to stream content in 4K UHD and watch on up to four screens simultaneously. Netflix is going to charge $13.99 for this beginning next month instead of $11.99. The basic plan stays the same at $7.99 per month.
Netflix had already raised the price of its standard tier back in 2015 when it was bumped up to $9.99 per month from $8.99. This latest price increase was inevitable and it will likely rise again at some point. Still, for what they offer, it remains a great price for tons of movies and original content. The company’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos recently confirmed that Netflix will spend $7 billion on content next year alone.
So you can’t really complain too much.
