Netflix announced their increased subscription rates on Tuesday. This isn’t a mere 1% or a 5% increase – no, it’s a whopping 60% increase, effective September 1st.
We’ve been subscribers to the service for almost a year – paying $10 a month for 1 DVD out at-a-time plus unlimited streaming. I didn’t mind the dollar increase (it was $9 when we first signed on), but today’s announcement leaves me with a really bad taste in my mouth. An otherwise stellar service is now charging me significantly more for the same service I enjoy.
While I didn’t cancel the service, I did eliminate the DVD portion, opting to stick with the streaming content that’s available. Today’s cartoon was a more knee jerk reaction, when I first heard the news.
Do you agree or disagree with the price increase? Will it affect your Netflix subscription (if you have one)? Sound off in the comments below!
