Netflix wants to raise its prices even though there are shows I haven’t finished binge-ing. Rude.
Earlier this week, the streaming service sent a fancy schmancy letter to its investors. In it, they write that “as we invest in and improve Netflix, we’ll occasionally ask our members to pay a little extra to reflect those improvements.”
The report comes not even a year after they banned sharing accounts across multiple households, which annoyed many people.
Their reasoning for raising the price, according to the letter, is that they’re going to add more live programming such as the SAG Awards, a special tennis match between Rafel Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz and WWE Wrestling. And fair enough, those will draw some numbers. But is it enough to warrant another price hike?'
Besides, in recent years Netflix has kind of fallen off. Yes, the fact they’ve got ‘Love on the Spectrum’ on the roster is almost reason alone to keep my subscription, but other streaming services have shows that I’m obsessed with.
Anyway, there's not a lot we can do to stop the price rise coming, so I'm off to binge LOTS.
