Streaming Netflix raises prices in the United States because it is investing heavily in new programs.
All three rate streaming services will rise by $ 1-2. For example, the standard plan for $ 11 increase to $ 13 per month, and the rate for 14 dollars will rise to 16. The price increase will be applied to all existing members in the next few months. New subscribers will pay more immediately.
Netflix spends billions of dollars on new content – only $ 8 billion last year. The new price increase can help to attract new investors, experts say. As at the end of the year the service had 58 million subscribers in the United States and 137 million worldwide.
