The increases will roll out to current subscribers in the coming weeks, depending on billing cycles. They’ll get a heads up by email and in the Netflix app 30 days before the new rates are applied to their accounts.
The company said in a statement it’s “updating our prices so that we can continue to invest in more shows and films. As always we will continue to offer a range of plans so that people can pick a price that works for their budget.”
Netflix has canceled a number of shows recently over complications related to COVID-19. Among them are the excellent GLOW, which isn’t getting a fourth season after all, I Am Not Okay With This and The Society.
