A Netflix price increase is on the horizon again for customers. This Netflix price increase could also enrage some users of the service, especially those that already dealt with price increases in the past. This latest one won't come into reality until September 1, but it is a big one.
According to Huffington Post, those that use the unlimited DVD-rental and streaming combination plan won't be paying $9.99 per month anymore. The price of that plan is going to go up to $15.98 per month in September, a nearly six dollar increase that is going to be for the same service. Individual services will now be $7.99, which means people could likely be saving money if they only use one of the services being offered.
That $7.99 price is for one DVD at a time, and a user can upgrade to two DVDs at a time for $11.99 per month. That won't include the online streaming services though, as everyone will have to pay the extra fee to keep using it. Now every current Netflix customer has to make a big decision about how they will continue their patronage of the company. That could end up creating disdain for the company that actually loses them customers.
Are you a Netflix user faced with this decision? What are you planning to do with your account now? Will you keep your subscription?
