“We change pricing from time to time as we continue investing in great entertainment and improving the overall Netflix experience,” a company spokeswoman said in a statement.

The move has sent Netflix stock soaring up. It's currently up around 6.5% to 354.60 USD. The company's content costs have ballooned and are expected to hit $13 billion in 2018. In September, Netflix reported $8.34 billion in long-term debt, up from $6.5 billion at the end of 2017. It has projected a negative cash flow of over $3 billion in 2018.

Existing Netflix members will be notified of the price increase by email and from within the Netflix app 30 days before the new prices are applied to their accounts. The exact timing will depend on your billing cycle.

Don't even need to jailbreak anymore due to signing services, always a cheaper option out there but whether the convenience is worth the cost. Cable providers are definitely not worth the cost

This is why people end up jailbreaking or using cracked movie apps to see free movies. Because of con artists like this. Hey well I canceled my when it was raised for the first time and there was no need for me to get it again.
