Oh no! Netflix is raising its prices

Netflix is raising its prices for US subscribers Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Is Officially Raising Prices In The US

Netflix will raise the price of its two most popular streaming plans this month to new and existing subscribers, according to reports. That represents a 10 percent increase.

It's interesting to also note that Disney will be removing their content from the streaming service in 2018, perhaps they're trying to make some more money while they can. That's $1-2 extra per month, which doesn't sound like a lot, but that's $12-24 per year, depending on the plan you have.

According to The Associated Press, the price hikes will affect almost 53 million Netflix subscribers.

According to a report published by Mashable, Netflix is going to make two pricing tiers for its US subscribers more expensive starting next month. The plan that limits subscribers to one screen at a time with regular definition viewing remains $7.99 a month.

The service last raised their monthly prices two years ago in 2015, which caused just as much of a stir amidst subscribers.

There's no real secret behind the reasons for Netflix raising its prices.

You'll find the screen above with three different subscription options.

Original programming has become a marquee area of focus for Netflix and its streaming rivals such as Hulu, and Amazon, with its Prime Video service. Over the next year, the company expects to spend $7 billion on original material to stream. In 2011, they offered a DVD and streaming service for under $10. The date you'll be notified depends on your billing cycle, but current users will start being notified from Thursday 19 October.

The online media business ended the United States trading day around 5% higher Thursday, which brings the year-to-date gain of the company's stock price above the 50% mark. But don't think we didn't notice, Netflix. This is the cheapest option, and is now not subject to the price increases.
