    Default Netflix 2018 Price Hike

    Right after the nice new enhanced crave comes out, netflix jacks up their prices
    https://business.financialpost.com/t...petition-rises

    Basic - $8.99 -> $9.99 +11%
    Standard - $10.99 -> $13.99 +27%
    Premium - $13.99 -> $16.99 +21%

    The new originals better be pretty awesome with the volume of items leaving. Streaming is the best, can't wait to ditch cable and go with Netflix, Hulu Canada, Crave + HBO, CBS, DAZN and Disney instead

    I feel like prices were just increased recently. Ugh.

    I ditched cable years ago and I watch a lot of Netflix so I am fine with the hikes as long as they keep renewing series' I like to watch and producing decent original content. So far so good. There is a ton of garbage on there too but it's easy to identify. I do wish they brought back the rating system instead of "% match" though which made it easier to identify shows I've never heard of that might be good.

    Still using the in-laws Netflix account.. Hopefully the bump doesn't make them cancel or bump us off

    Looks like it was last august (Mine increased Oct 2017)
    Basic plan (no HD, one screen streaming): $1 increase to $8.99 per month
    Standard plan (HD, two screens streaming): $1 increase to $10.99 per month
    Premium plan (4K, four screen streaming): $2 increase to $13.99 per month
    Now they are worse than shaw and telus

    Hopefully nothing happens to my account again. Last year I got an e-mail saying the price is going to increase to $13.99 but they kept charging me $11.99.

    It's still great value at $16.99, as we watch it everyday vs. our Optik TV plan which I only watch every other day (if that).

    Was it just a warning email? I got one too, they sent it like a year before the actual price increase. The email itself was just a notification that the price would be increasing on X date, and they gave huge notice. Not sure if it's the same for you or not.

    I just started watching that and it seems good.

    Realistically, even $10/hr is dirt cheap for any kind of entertainment, so $10-15 for the entire month as long someone watches more than an hour or two of Netflix, I feel like it's a bargain. Being able to download most shows too for flights and such is also great.

    Yeah I actually got 2 emails, first was for August 2017 and second was December 2017. Price increase still hasn't kicked in.

    Awesome.

    I have a similar experience with XM Radio - my 3 month trial ended May 2017 and I've had it ever since haha. Don't really use it but I check every now and then and it's still there. I remember reading somewhere that if you aren't online when they send the "kill" signal, it stays.

    Considering we pay in the neighborhood of 100$/month for cable, Netflix is still a great value if it jacked itself up to 30$/month. Which is most likely their future outlook. Nobody notices or cares much about a 1$ increase, which they can get away with every couple years.

    Slowly their content will get better. They are currently spending a fortune on production of exclusive content. Eventually all the good shows will be exclusive to Netflix, as it is cable is mainly producing boring garbage TV.

    Not to mention the non-existant advertisements.

    Damn they cancelled Daredevil already? Still gotta watch S03. Hope they bring back The Punisher.

    Might switch to the premium plan.

    This thread is the first I've even heard of standard and premium. What the heck is it? Does it give you more content? True HD?

    Except for the original starwars movies which I find the most amusing.
