Netflix, one of the top American providers of on-demand TV shows and movies, will be increasing its rate charges. Current members, however, will not see a change in price for some time, ComingSoon.net reports on Friday.
The streaming internet provider sent out an e-mail. In it, it stated that in order to continue adding more movies and TV shows to its list of content, the monthly subscription price will rise from $7.99 to $8.99 for new members. The e-mail continues to thank current members and promises that the plan for current members will not increase for two years, as a thank you.
A dollar isn’t a huge difference; Netflix has always done a great job in providing members with a wide selection of content. As a member myself, I’ll be sticking with the service and think it’s great of them to keep our rate as is for the next two years.

“The Tick” might not be very popular, but the source promises that it’s better than it seems; after all, we’re all excited about an upcoming movie titled “Ant-Man.” Cinemablend describes it as a “short-lived but super silly sitcom about masked heroes and their misadventures around the city.”
