Watching your favourite shows on Netflix Canada just got a little more expensive.
The popular video streaming service is hiking prices for new members effective immediately and will do the same for existing users after notifying them by email in the coming weeks.
Netflix’s standard plan will now cost a dollar more — or $10.99 a month — to watch content on two screens at a time. The basic plan, which does not offer high definition video and only permits one streaming screen at a time, also goes up a dollar to $8.99 a month. Premium plan subscribers will pay $2 more for up to four simultaneous streams and ultra high-definition 4K content. It will now cost $13.99 monthly.
The reason for the pricing change: they’re adding more exclusive TV shows and movies and have been requiring the Canadian rights to U.S. network shows like the CW’s “Riverdale.” All to make the Netflix experience that much better.
I feel that it won’t be long until Netflix is the same price as cable.
