How much can Netflix raise its prices before customers cancel in droves?

Netflix announced the biggest price increase in the history of the streaming service today, hiking prices on all three of its US plan tiers by between 13% and 18%. The most popular plan in the US, for example, will now cost $13 instead of $11, and there’s no great mystery why Netflix is doing this. The company needs an ever-growing pile of cash to fund the original shows and movies that make Netflix’s stable of exclusive content attractive enough to keep subscribers and entice new ones.

Netflix just announced the biggest price increase in the history of its streaming service

Netflix increased the prices of all three of its US plans on Tuesday, some by as much as 18%, which makes this the most substantial price jump since the streaming service debuted in 2007.

As reported by CNBC on Tuesday morning, the standard plan — which offers HD video and allows users to watch from up to two devices at once — will be subjected to the largest price hike, percentage-wise, as it climbs from $10.99 a month to $12.99 a month. As CNBC points out, that’s still cheaper than HBO NOW, which costs $14.99 a month, but upping the price of its most popular plan will certainly have plenty of subscribers up in arms.
