Netflix Raises Prices on All Plans in US+Canada
Guess I’m adding them to my rotation of Subscribe, watch the new seasons of my favourite shows, and cancel.
$20 a month for a streaming service is getting a bit steep, especially since I’ve usually got subscriptions to 3-4 steaming services at a time.
The company’s standard plan will rise to $15.50 per month from $14, while the 4K plan will rise to $20 per month from $18. The basic plan, which doesn’t include HD, is also rising to $10 per month from $9
Did anyone else hear that blockbuster is being rebooted as a new streaming service?
My biggest problem with Netflix is it is a wasteland of half finished series that never conclude. I am wary of starting anything on Netflix because I don’t want to get invested and have it cancelled. They should do more mini-series programs with a one or two season pre-set story arc.
Might be it for me. How many price increases is this now? They’ve lost a lot of content, and how many long running shows over 3 seasons? I’m not saying they need a ton that go 10 seasons or more, but they are so quick to pull the plug that I have a hard time wanting to get invested.
“Netflix pushes all reeled in users back to competition and/or piracy”
“Piracy levels surge after Netflix implements another price hike.”
Seriously how many times do they think they can get away with this in a time where new streaming services pop up every month?
Netflix, Hulu, Paramount, Prime, Apple TV, HBO max, Starz and Disney. And then there’s your internet service provider. All these streaming services show the same programs except for original content, and even then, that original content isn’t always great. Almost coming around back to cable days. I hate it.
Time to dust off the ol’ pegleg.
So tired of all these streaming services raising prices, this keeps up cable will be back in business
Interesting that I learn about price increases via Reddit rather than a notification from Netflix.
Huh, I forgot Netflix was nickel-and-diming me for 4K. $20/mo is too much for one streaming service, particularly one that’s hemorrhaged so much content over the years amid these price hikes. Looks like I’ll be canceling my sub for the first time
I remember when they used to mail you chipped DVDs in a paper envelope so you could watch a series 3 episodes at a time… after Dave was finished with it, of course.
Everytime they raise prices, I reduce my plan. I think im already on the lowest one. So i guess that means no more netflix.
They raise their prices but not their quality.
Fuck. Again? Wasn’t the last one just middle of last year?
Pretty soon I’m just going to start torrenting everything again.
Removes Star Trek. Raises prices. No thanks!
This would be the top for me for keeping a constant subscription to Netflix going.
Anything more and I’ll start stopping my sub for a few months, then binge watch when there’s enough content to make it worth it.
Netflix relly thinks that they will survive just csuse they came first huh. Well their Garbage ass original movies and shit tier selection is not worth 20 bucks
Must be supply chain issues…
I’m about to drop Netflix for HBO Max, fuck em. I can just pirate my anime and Netflix originals online from now on.
Damn, that really sucks for my brother. Doesn’t matter to me though… unless he changes his password.
This might be the straw for me. Marvel shows are done. Office and Parks and rec, the shows my wife likes to watch over and over, are gone. Netflix Originals have gone way down in quality since the days of OitNB.
The last price hike I accepted barely. Hard to justify it this time. May be time to cancel Nothing is out I’m currently watching. $20 for 4k. I may as well switch to HBO or showtime.
Just get Plex!
Asking a lot of money for a platform that continues to lose relevance and churn out dogshit.
At those prices I will have to start reading books, parenting my kids, and screwing my wife.
It may be time to get rid of Netflix now. I can get 2 or 3 other services for that price.
I budget 2 streaming services a month Netflix lost my rotation when 4k version went to $18. I was willing to pay $15. Love Disney $8. Hulu is a great option, Prime gets me free delivery though I budget purchases too. Inflation hits us all hard. Netflix is being greedy. Honestly last time I rotated them in 2 months ago. I didn’t find too much I was into but that’s my opinion. Plenty of competition out there.
Frog + pot + water + heat
The article doesn’t really clarify, is this price hike because they’re loosing money needed to sustain their current business? Or are they failing to increase their revenue with new customers so they hike their prices to artificially show “growth” year over year?
Didn’t they just raise the rate last year? It feels like it was only $9 3-4 years ago.
makes me feel better about canceling a month ago
Buy it in India using VPN or asking any Indian friend you know and then use the logins to open the same over there. At present its about $8.75 for 4 screens with ultra hd.
Also, share accounts with friends and family (they get their own profile) so you’re splitting the cost of streaming services.
It’s not even worth what we’re paying now tbh. 95% trash or stuff that’s also available somewhere else.
More reason to rotate through subscriptions.
I usually subscribe/cancel between Netflix, HBO Max and Disney every month so I’m not paying for more than 1 service at a time.
If Netflix was cheaper, I would consider keeping it year round, but at these prices, I’m just going to get it once every 3 months.
