Yup, they did it again – Netflix has raised its prices. The monthly cost for a premium subscription will now run customers $19.99 per month vs. the previous $18.

And yes, the standard and basic plans are also going up –there’s no escaping it, you’re eventually going to pay more for your Netflix subscription.

A Netflix spokesperson tells Reuters, “We’re updating our prices so that we can continue to offer a wide variety of quality entertainment options. As always, we offer a range of plans so members can pick a price that works for their budget.”

Here’s the full breakdown of the new pricing below:

Hopefully, this sends Netflix a message that we’re not going to continue taking these rate increases lightly. With the mountain of streaming services available, consumers now have options, and Netflix isn’t the only shop in town anymore.

And, understandably, services have to raise their prices from time to time, but it seems Netflix does it a lot more often than others.
