Netflix plans to “Update” its’ pricing

Netflix is about to get a bit more costly.

Though, you may need to read between the lines to see what it’s going to cost you.

According to TV Answer Man, the streaming service sent an email out to current customers outlining their new monthly plans.

But they’re quick to note, it’s not a “price increase.”

It’s a “price update.”

TV Answer Man quotes the email you may currently have in your spam folder:

“We hope you’re enjoying everything Netflix has to offer. We’re updating our prices to bring you more great entertainment. Your monthly price will change to (new plan price) on March 12, 2022.”

The email continues:

“This update will allow us to deliver even more value for your membership — with stories that lift you up, move you or simply make your day a little better.”

That “update” is the planned increase of $1-2 per month, per plan.

Currently, users with the Standard Plan pay about $14.99 per month.

Under the new plan, that could cost $15.49.

Netflix’s “Plans and Pricing” help tab on their website reflects this with an asterisk:

“These prices apply to new members and will gradually take effect for all current members. Current members will receive an email notification 30 days before their price changes, unless they change their plan.”

While that may not seem like too much extra per month, that still adds up.

Currently, Disney+ costs approximately $8 per month for their standard plan, with the Hulu/ESPN bundle running about $14 per month.

HBO Max is about the same, at $14 per month.

Paramount+ runs around $9.99 per month.

And lastly, Peacock costs about $4.99 per month.

So that’s pretty cool. Unless we want to carve out $58ish from our monthly income…

We’re back to the point of choosing which TV bundles we want to pay for.
