It looks like your holiday budget planning will now have to include a Netflix price jump, as your subscription will soon cost you more.
Just in time to crush your holiday cheer.
Netflix revealed back in October that we would soon be seeing a price increase for its streaming services. While the timing of the increase depends on the individual's billing cycle, majority of the price hikes have fallen in line with the upcoming holidays.
Users will get a warning about the price increase via email and the app at least 30 days ahead of time. For those who pay on the 25th of every month, that meant finding out about the price jump over Thanksgiving weekend, making their first bill with increased price fall on Christmas.
Some people weren't happy with the new price, while others find the streaming service to be more than worth it.

Standard U.S. subscriptions will jump from $9.99 to $10.99, while premier tier price will increase from $11.99 to $13.99. The basic $7.99 plan will remain unchanged.
