It’s the first time Netflix has raised prices in three years, but we’ve had some time to get used to the idea since the company announced it last month. Wait, did they do that on purpose to lull us into a sense of “Well, it’s inevitable, might as well get used to it?” Probably.
According to CNNMoney, Netflix sent an email to subscribers today with the news that only new members will pay $8.99, while those already on the rolls can stay at the $7.99 rate.
The price hike is “in order to continue adding more movies and TV shows,” so maybe Kevin Spacey added a new rider to his contract that he requires like, a special expensive mirror to practice smirking in or something. Oh, you crazy, Spacey!
