Netflix price hike (another one)

They previously said that existing customers were grandfathered until May 2016 at $7.99 / month, but now it's not clear what the price for existing subscribers will become in May 2016. It sounds like existing subscribers will increase from $7.99 to $8.99 in May, and then to $9.99 in October next year.
At the time of that 2014 price hike, Netflix also made these changes:
- cut the number of simultaneous streams allowed per account from 3 to 2
- introduced a cheapskate $7.99 / month plan with SD only and a single stream allowed
- introduced a more expensive family plan at $11.99 / month that allows Ultra HD and up to 4 streams
Only the standard plan is currently slated to go up - the cheapskate and family plan prices will remain the same for the moment.
