Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services on the planet for watching a wide range of movies and series from different genres, countries, and years. The only thing you need to do to access their content is to suscribe to the platform.

That obviously comes at a cost, which in this case is per month. On Friday, the company has announced a price increase in most of its subscription plans in the United States and Canada. It is the third price hike from the streaming platform in the last three years and the first one since October 2020.

The customer support site of Netflix says that changes will directly take effect for new subscribers while it reads that "Current members will receive an email notification 30 days before their price changes, unless they change their plan." Find out here what are the changes in Netflix prices in the US and Canada.
