Cord cutters will be paying a slightly higher price per month for streaming on-demand movies and programs from Netflix.


Starting November 18 it will cost new users. $9.99 a month for the company’s standard level of service.  That’s up $1 per month from the previous price of $8.99.

Current subscribers will be able to keep the $8.99 rate for a year.  The Standard subscription include HD programming, unlimited streaming and the ability for 2 users to watch on 2 separate screens at the same time.

The service has increasingly gotten involved in creating original programs, as as cable channels and broadcast networks have known for a long time, that’s expensive.

A spokesperson for the company said, “To continue adding more TV shows and movies including many Netflix original titles, we are modestly raising the price for some new members in the U.S., Canada and Latin America.”
