You May See a Netflix Price Increase Next Month
If Netflix grandfathered you into the $7.99 per-month price for its Standard streaming plan, your monthly price will increase next month to $9.99. Netflix raised the monthly price for new subscribers to $8.99 in 2014 and then to $9.99 in 2015, but allowed existing customers to pay the old price for up to two years after the original increase. While the price hike is unfortunate, Netflix would still be a good deal at twice the price.
Netflix needs to find a way to allow paid subscribers to view their content anywhere in the world. Today you are blocked while traveling outside the US. You continue to pay without access to the service.
