Did you hear? It’s about to get a whole lot more expensive to watch your favorite shows on Netflix. The online streaming service is raising its prices to $11 per month if you have HD with two devices, and $14 if you get 4K videos with four devices.
Netflix recently confirmed in a statement that the price changes, which were first announced on Oct. 5, will roll out within the next few months depending on billing cycles. Still, people have already started receiving emails from Netflix and notifications about the higher prices when they navigate the site.
Users are none too happy, especially since Netflix just removed popular shows like How I Met Your Mother from the streaming service.
Netflix “We are increasing our prices so we can give you more of what you love!”

Dear Netflix, if you want to convince me that it’s worth it to keep my Netflix plan with the price increase, maybe don’t use the Smurfs movie as an example of cool new titles you’ve added…

Others claim they’re now swearing off the service for good.
Netflix removed almost every show I watch and had the audacity to tell me they are raising their prices to $13.99 in December…. bout to get real friendly with Hulu

To find out when the price changes will affect you, you can check details under your account settings. If you see any immediate price changes, know this: “From time to time, Netflix plans and pricing are adjusted as we add more exclusive TV shows and movies, introduce new product features and improve the overall Netflix experience to help members find something great to watch even faster,” a spokesperson recently said in a statement.
Sigh. Looks like we’re going to have to binge on Stranger Things now before prices go up!
