Beginning in November, Netflix will raise its prices again for two of its tiers, according to Mashable. The $9.99 standard service will increase to $10.99 and the $11.99 premium service will jump to $13.99. Fortunately for those on the basic $7.99 plan with single-screen streaming, prices will remain the same (for now). Netflix plans to send out a notification on October 19th, and subscribers will be given at least 30 days warning before the price hike.

Although Netflix executives did not discuss the matter in interviews, the company did release a statement to address the price increase: "From time to time, Netflix plans and pricing are adjusted as we add more exclusive TV shows and movies, introduce new product features and improve the overall Netflix experience to help members find something great to watch even faster." With the higher prices, we're expecting Netflix to offer advanced, new features and more great content in the coming months. 

The last time Netflix announced a price increase was in 2016 when prices for the standard service increased from $8.99 to $9.99 and the basic $7.99 plan and premium $11.99 plans were introduced. Even though prices aren't going to change for current subscribers until November, the new prices are already reflected on Netflix.

You'd think with so many people using 'unlocked' streaming devices they would just merge with Hulu and make an 'ultimate' service that was affordable so people didn't feel like they had to stream stuff without paying for it. I personally like both Netflix and Hulu......but I still pay for both and Cable TV (combined $300/month) and it's just becoming way too expensive for all of it. If HULUFLIX could become a major competitor...add some more content.....(including all these extra services now from abc and other networks)...I would be willing to pay $20/month and ditch !

I still think it’s one of the best deals out there for the quality of the content, especially the original productions. It would cost our family of four probably about $80 to go out to one movie at the theater after drinks and popcorn. I’d rather pay $11.99 than $14.99, but I’m not complaining.

This makes me sad. Why not just save money by getting rid of the half the crap on there that no one watches. pfft
