It’s About To Get More Expensive To ‘Netflix And Chill’
It's been the cheap way to watch movies and spend (a lot of) time for the last couple years. But if your idea of an incredible Friday night is to "Netflix and Chill," it's about to get a little more expensive.
Netflix has announced that their most common package is about to go up in price.
According to The Verge, the price is going to rise $2 from $11.99 a month to $13.99 a month. That's not for all tiers of Netflix though. That's for the premium tier, which is available in Ultra HD and allows users to watch on up to four screens.
So if you have two kids watching on their phones, you want to watch a romance, and your significant other wants to watch The Walking Dead in the bedroom, then this is the plan you're going to want.
The tier right below that which allows you to watch on two screens at once, is going up from $9.99 to $10.99 per month.
The basic tier will remain at $7.99.
So why the change? Here is their answer:
“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."
So that's good news right? You'll get more exclusive TV shows and movies, and be able to find something to watch even faster? That's good...I was beginning to think that half of Netflix's entertainment value invloved hours of me keeping busy trying to find anything worth watching.
But given the price of other entertainment, $13.99 a month still seems like a deal for a family of four to watch as many movies and TV shows as they can in a month.
Look for the price increase on your next bill after October 19th.
