It’s time again: Netflix is raising prices for customers in the US and Canada. Monthly pricing is scheduled to increase by a dollar or two depending on your subscription level.
Reuters first reported that in the US, the standard plans would go from US$ 13.99 monthly to US$ 15.49; Netflix’s own help site confirmed the change, as well as an increase to the premium tier from around $18 to $19.99 monthly.
The change is essentially mirrored in the north, where standard plans have been increased from 15.99 Canadians to 16.49. (Standard plans only cover the use of two screens simultaneously, while premium plans allow for up to four, as well as Ultra HD picture quality.)
If this all sounds familiar, it’s because that’s more or less what Netflix does every few years. An extra dollar or two was added towards the end of 2020. The same happened in January 2019, October 2017, October 2015, May 2014, You got the idea. You start to forget what this service used to cost $8 per month a decade ago, though the company’s original content ambitions have grown in tandem with price, for better or for worse.
