Uh oh, Netflix is cranking up the money machine again. All Netflix U.S. and Canada plans now cost an extra dollar or two. The price hike brings the cost of Netflix’s 4K plan to a whopping $20 per month—is that really worth it?
Thankfully, Netflix says it will warn customers 30 days before it applies the new prices to their account. But new and returning subscribers must pay these updated rates if they want to sign up for the service, effective immediately.
- Premium (4K, 4 Screens): $20 a month, previously $18
- Standard (1080p, 2 Screens): $15.50 a month, previously $14
- Basic (720p, 1 Screen): $10 a month, previously $9
For reference, those with a Premium Netflix plan will find themselves paying a total of $240 per year for service. Twelve months of the 4K plan cost $216 a year before this price change.
Netflix hasn’t changed its prices since 2019, you know, before we all added Disney+ and HBO Max to our ever-growing list of expensive streaming services. Now that prices are going up, you may want to consider learning about free streaming options or money-saving techniques, like rotating subscriptions.
