Netflix has announced a price bump for two of its subscription plans for users in the United States. These are Standard and Premium subscription plans that offer HD streaming and multiple devices support. These plans have now become more expensive by $1 and $2 respectively.
It means you will now have to pay Netflix $13.99 per month for the Standard plan and $17.99 per month for the Premium plan. The pricing for the Basic plan remains unchanged i.e. $8.99 per month. It is the entry-level plan where the streaming quality is restricted to 480p and only one device can be used at a time for watching content.
The price bump has been made official just weeks after Netflix made changes to Canadian pricing. These new prices will be effective instantly for the new subscribers. If you are an existing subscriber, you are likely to see the new prices coming into effect from your next billing date. As always, you can choose to cancel or change your subscription plan anytime you want.
Netflix has assured that these new prices do not reflect anything for prices in other global markets. It said prices are changed on a country-to-country basis. It means unless the team makes an official announcement for your particular country, you will continue to pay the existing prices.
