Netflix on Thursday raised the prices of its standard and premium plans to $13.99 and $17.99 per month, respectively. Prior to Thursday, those plans were priced at $12.99 and $15.00, respectively.
Current Netflix customers will see the updated prices on their bill over the next two months, Netflix told CNBC. Customers will get a warning 30 days prior to the change.
The entry-level basic plan remains at $7.99 per month, the same price that was introduced last year. It's the first increase since Netflix boosted the cost of its service in January 2019. Prior to then, the basic, standard and premium plans were available for $8, $11 and $14, respectively.
Doesn't make much sense. It's almost like they're trying to convince everyone who's on the fence after the child-exploitation debacle to go ahead and jump ship.
