Netflix has announced an increase in monthly fees for USA – a first in two years. It has hiked costs for two of its three main subscription plans.
The standard plan will go from $9.99 to $10.99 per month and the premium plan – which allows streaming on four screens in high definition – will jump from $11.99 to $13.99 per month. The silver lining in this cloud is that the basic plan will remain at $7.99, which only offers standard definition video on one screen.
In India, though, we expect Netflix to wait for its very first original to stream – Sacred Games starring Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. On the basis of its response, Netflix may increase its charges à la Amazon Prime which increased its subscription charges from INR 499 to INR 999 after tasting magnanimous success with Inside Edge.
