I love Netflix and always wondered why it was so much cheaper than HBO, Showtime, etc. when it has so much more content.

It is called inflation and affects many many prices. Imho, Netlix is worth the extra $24 per year.

We watch a LOT of NEtflix in our house, and so even with the price increase it is completely worth it in our house.

I usually only pay for Netflix for 2 months out of the year and cancel the rest of the time. Since Netflix makes entire seasons of shows available for immediate viewing, there is no reason for me to have this service every month. I just wait for a few shows I want to see, watch them over the course of a month, then cancel. Netflix is set up perfectly for this type of viewing.

Skimmed the responses but didn't see this mentioned so will throw in my .02c. When NF streaming started it was looked at by the big boys as nothing to take serious and they all lined up to lease out their old shows for a fee. And NF early streaming library was nothing to get excited about. We all know how things have changed and now all those big boys are trying to play catch up with their own services and many will no longer license shows to competitors. NF is left with few alternatives but to make their own content, which costs money, which gets passed along to consumers. It's still a great value for the monthly fee IMO, but there could be a point at which I would no longer pay...or would have to think about it long and hard. Mid $20's maybe? Possibly in the $30's if they have enuf must see shows. IDK, I will cross that bridge when it comes but for now I don't mind this increase. I am also a shareholder and the stock has treated me well.


I've been a cord cutter for a couple years now and NF is an integral part of that along w/ Amazon Prime and YouTubeTV plus a few other odd streaming freebies on the Apple Box and Smart TV.

Totally agree! I've really been amping up my Prime viewing with Brit series & Amazon is improving the film selection too. But NF still rules with both of those genres & especially original series. Series I wouldn't have thought I would be interested in, like Wild Wild West or The Crown or other surprises are just head & shoulders better than most TV series & their output volume is bigger than HBO at this point.

I wish the price increase was less but it's not a dealbreaker yet.
