Just because 2019 needs to start on the right note, Netflix is raising its subscription rates $1-2 dollars per member, so if your plan costs $11, it’s now gonna cost $13. New members will be charged the new price.
This comes after Netflix spent a reported $100 million to keep Friends, that show about the friends in New York with improbably large apartments. Netflix is having a killer year with the success of both Bird Box and the Golden Globes wins for the documentary Roma.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the service is effected by the new competitors in the streaming game. Disney + is launching this year, with shows from their Marvel and Star Wars franchises.
