Most Netflix Subscribers Are In For a Surprise


Longtime Netflix subscribers may not realize their monthly bill is about to spike. Over the past couple years, the video streaming service has inched its monthly subscription price from $7.99 to $9.99, the standard rate for a high-definition plan as of last fall. That's about to change. Netflix will begin charging everyone the full $9.99 price next month when the two-year discount deal ends for around 17 million longtime users. The price hike may come as news for most of these people. According to a J.P. Morgan note this week, 80% of subscribers surveyed weren't aware of the impending changes. Details on whether your plan will be among those affected can be accessed under the "Your Account" tab in the upper right-hand corner of the Netflix desktop screen.

  • Netflix Not Threatened By Hulu's Fyre Fest Documentary

    Hulu and Netflix are battling for whose Fyre Fest documentary will be more popular. Business Insider reports Hulu made a surprise move earlier this week, releasing its documentary on the infamous music festival four days before the release of Netflix's 'Fyre' doc. Chris Smith, who directed Netflix's "Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened" said that he and his team were told in advance what Hulu was planning. Smith said, "We knew it was coming and I brought it up with Netflix and it just wasn't an issue to them," Smith said. Though Hulu has around 25 million subscribers, Netflix has 137 million subscribers worldwide. Smith added, "For us [the Hulu release] wasn't that much of a big deal because we just knew that so many more people are going to see it on Netflix."

  • A Surprise Sequel To Netflix's 'A Christmas Prince' Coming Soon

    Netflix's 2017 "A Christmas Prince" was made in the vein of a Lifetime Christmas movie. It gained a lot of popularity over the holiday season. In fact, Netflix even expressed concern about subscribers who were watching the movie on repeat- some over 50 times in a matter of two weeks. At the end of the movie, Amber and Prince Richard of Aldovia (a fictional country in Europe) get engaged. Netflix has apparently decided to make a sequel inspired by the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The sequel will come out "this holiday season" and they cordially invite everyone to watch it when it drops.
