Netflix raising price of most popular plan to $9.99 per month for new customers

Netflix will soon raise the price of its most popular streaming option by $1 per month. Currently $8.99, Netflix's option that allows you to watch two screens at a time with HD quality will soon cost $9.99 for new members.

Existing members currently paying $8.99, or in some cases, $7.99, will be able to keep their current pricing for varying amounts of time. Netflix has two other subscription options: a $7.99 per month plan that lets you watch on one screen at a time in standard definition, as well as a $11.99 per month plan that lets you watch on four screens at once, and provides streaming in both HD and Ultra HD. The prices for these plans will remain unaffected.

  • Didn't they already raise the price? I'm currently paying £5.99
  • Yes, I think so. I'm still paying £5.99 for the HD plan which is currently £7.49. I don't think this price effects Europe, UK and Ireland, or anything outside of the US and Latin America. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The UHD is £7.49 Posted via the Android Central App
  • No, it isn't. Maybe it is you signed up a while ago, before they raised their prices. But the price listed right now is £8.99 Posted via the Android Central App
  • Ultra HD...lol marketing BS Posted via the Android Central App
  • I use the 4k streaming and it's not bs, it looks awesome Z3 compact
  • I looked at some houses of cards on a 4k set, it is definitely impressive looking.
    For myself the amount of content in 4k doesn't justify the price quite yet though. I'll wait for prices to drop and more content sources.

  • They need to pay for those interconnections somehow.
  • Worth it if they do new series like House of Cards Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm on the 7.99 for 2 screens with hd Posted via the Android Central App
  • Here we go again Check out my new YouTube channel for tech reviews!
  • At least they put money to good use and offer employees long paid maternity leave. Plus lately they have had quite a bit of good news shows. For me Narcos, Orange is new black, house of cards, daredevil, the killing. I'm sure there are others. Posted via the Android Central App
  • They added Gotham and the last season of the Walking Dead for the binge watchers. They also are continuing to bring their own produced movies and shows, so they definitely aren't just screwing people over by asking for another dollar. Posted via the Android Central App
  • And Supernatural the other day. They're putting the previous seasons up for the weekend binge before the new seasons start. In the past they had usually waited a month or so after the new seasons started. All I know is that an entire year of Netflix is about the same as one month of cable through Verizon FiOS for me. I use it a lot and it's a good deal for me. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Just went to sign up before the hike and it is already $9.99 Posted via my Note 4 on Cricket
  • On another note Verizon keeps jacking up there already sky high prices. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I kinda wonder how much this has to do with being able to subscribe in-app with the iOS app now. I'm sure Apple is still taking the 30% cut.
