Netflix is increasing pricing again
Mashable Article

quote:

Get ready to pay just a bit more for your Netflix subscription.

The streaming video service will be raising prices on its middle and top tier plans in the U.S. starting in November. Subscribers who currently pay for the standard $9.99 service will be charged $10.99. The price of the premium tier will rise from $11.99 to $13.99.

Good news for people on the basic $7.99 plan—that price is staying put, for now.


I don't like it, but doesn't bother me too much. I subscribe to Netflix and HBO Now. I dropped Hulu (without commercials) a couple months ago because of the horrible UI. Netflix has been (and still is) the cheapest of the 3 and the service I use the most.

re: Netflix is increasing pricing again
coincidentally I was wondering when this was going to happen. The recent threads showing their debt and the consistent increase in Original shows/movies made me think how the hell they're going to get the money for it. so not surprising and I'm okay with the increased price as long as they keep throwing out gems of movies and shows.

Stranger Things 2

Smart on Netflix short term. Not enough of a change month to month for too many people to cancel but they seem to be doing this more and more frequently. Eventually they'll burst their own bubble like cable.

I didn't even know Netflix had different plans.

Same here. I think I'm paying $9.99. What would I lose by going to the $7.99 plan?

I can only think of 2 plans. The lower one is only SD streaming and one device at once, and the higher has HD and can stream on two devices at once.

Just looked it up. Different plans for how many devices can stream Netflix at the same time. So basic is one then all the way up to premium at 4 devices.

You'd lose HD... so... a LOT.

I was actually just looking into this because I didn't realize they did plans either, and I'm also on the standard $9.99 about to be $10.99 plan.

Basic plan is SD quality, one screen active at a time.
Standard plan is HD quality, two screens active at a time.
Premium plan is UHD quality (when available), four screens active at a time.

Just checked as well, I the highest tier must be pretty new. Oh well, my plan goes up a dollar. Could be worse.

I'm sticking with the $10 plan then. I would only have the TV and possibly a Tablet going at once. And no 4k set in the house yet.

What is the highest payment that you'd be okay with? Netflix is going to find it. They'll keep raising prices until they see a drop off in membership

I have 2 4k tvs and am going to share the plan with the girlfriend and her 2 4k tvs. So looks like premium is 13.99 a month now

re: Netflix is increasing pricing again
yeah, i'm ok with the 13.99. that's still reasonably priced for all of the content.

i was wondering what my threshold was, price wise, that would make me really think hard about cancelling, and I'm not sure. Maybe north of $20? But then again it's only 20 bucks, but when you factor in all of the media services people routinely pay for monthly (netflix, cable/internet, spotify, amazon prime, etc.) it starts to add up.

HBO is $15 and the gold standard of premium channels. I think they'd run into a lot of resistance if they priced themselves higher than HBO.

Even HBO has a lot of part time subscribers, so if they increase the price too much they'd probably see more subscribers switching to part time than leaving completely.

If there was a bundle where I could just get Netflix, WatchESPN and/or FoxSportsGo, I'd be all over that.
I'd pay $30-35/month for that.

And I know people will say, well you can get cable with your internet provider more than likely for $20 more a month and have espn and foxsports and much more. Well the issue with that is I have more than 1 tv, so when I have to start renting 6 HD boxes at $5-8/month each, it's no longer $20/month. And also, I only care about maybe 5 of the 250 channels you offer.

I already purchased my "cable box" I have an android tv, 3 rokus and 2 firetvs. If Cox or Time Warner or whatever cable company would simply offer their cable services through those streaming boxes with their own apps instead of having to rent their boxes, i'd have cable with them. Hell they don't even need an app. Just let me pay you to have a login for all the other apps. I'll pay $15/month and you give me a cable login so I can log into the apps for WatchESPN, FoxSports, NBCSports, ABC, NBC, Fox, DisneyJr, NickJr, TNT, etc. I'll use your internet, you give me access to standalone apps using my cable provider log in.

Probably going to be the catalyst for me to drop Netflix. I'm no frog. You can't boil me slowly, baw.

I like original content, but if Netflix keeps getting rid of more and more of their respectable movies, there will be a point to where it won't be worth it anymore for me.

I can only handle so many B films.

The cartoons and kids stuff alone is worth the $10 a month for me. I can tell my daughter to go turn on a show for my son while I'm cooking dinner, and it is so simple. I rarely watch anything on there myself.

re: Netflix is increasing pricing again
I cancelled Netflix.

Losing Futurama hurt a lot, losing 30 Rock was just a deal breaker for me. It's one of the shows I'll put on before bed when I want some background noise and don't need to actively watch the TV.

I'll binge watch Stranger Things season 2 before my sub runs out. The Netflix originals aren't enough to keep me subbed.
