Less than a year and a half after raising the price of a Netflix subscription from $7.99 to $8.99, Netflix has implemented another $1 increase.

New subscribers will now have to pay $9.99 per month for the most popular Netflix plan, which allows customers to stream HD video on up to two devices simultaneously.

Existing subscribers will have their current prices locked in until October, 2016.

Don’t want to pay $10 per month for Netflix? There is still a cheaper option: you can pay $7.99 for a basic plan. But you won’t get high definition video and you’ll only be able to stream to one device at a time. That means you can’t watch Netflix on your TV while another member of your household watches a different video on a phone or tablet.

Want 4K video and support for streaming to up four devices at once? The price of a premium plan is still $11.99 per month.

Netflix isn’t the only online video site to offer pricing tiers. Hulu continues to offer some content for free, an ad-supported service for $7.99 per month, and a new ad-free option for $11.99 per month.

  1. For me, all these services are “Not Available In Your Region”. Hey buddy, my money is as good as anyone’s money – but not good enough for you? Go screw yourself!

    1. The problem is that your money isn’t as good as the money others have paid for the rights to show those services in your region.

  2. that’s the US – milk the cows that feed themselfs as much and long as possible

  3. At the same time most of their costs of operation just continue to decrease. I blame Wall Street, which wants ever higher profits from Netflix and those they license content from.

  4. Still a hell of a lot cheaper than the second year of a cable or satellite service.

  5. Does the $9.99 include unlimited rentals or is that just the membership fee?

  6. glad I dumped them last rate hike,,shitty selection, raising rates annually..went back to free OTA…never been happier…see ya suckers

  7. It has not gotten crazy expensive but if they keep pushing they Amazon will look so much better.
    You get free shipping on many items the ability to rent movies and a pretty large catalog of movies/tv shows.
    So it Hulu and Netflix keep pushing they wont last long, I will just drop them. Hulu will be the first to go Netflix has Top Gear coming next year.

    1. I am a Prime member and have used the Amazon instant video service a couple of times. The biggest issue I have with Amazon is, their UI is total garbage. If I am looking for Star Trek, they will show all of the available series/movies but the series and movies will not be in order and you have to hunt around to find the exact one you are looking for. Netflix by far has the best UI of any streaming service I have used.
