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