Watching your favourite shows on Netflix Canada just got a little more expensive.

The popular video streaming service is hiking prices for new members effective immediately. It will do the same for existing users after notifying them by email in the coming weeks.

Netflix’s standard plan will now cost a dollar more — or $10.99 a month — to watch content on two screens at a time.

The basic plan, which does not offer high definition video and only permits one streaming screen at a time, also goes up a dollar to $8.99 a month.

Premium plan subscribers will pay $2 more for up to four simultaneous streams and ultra high-definition 4K content. It will now cost $13.99 monthly.

No interest I only have it because of the Rogers & Samsung S8 promotion.

I know Netflix is spending a lot of money on creating content but this is the news this week:
1-Disney pulling content from Netflix, launching their own streaming service
2-CBS expands all access to Canada*
3-Netflix raises prices in Canada

How does this make any sense? In what multiverse is more competition a sign that it's time to raise your prices?

*One last edit to say, Star Trek Discovery will not be available to Canadians buying this service.
1) Doesn't affect canadians (for now)

and in last weeks news Netflix is in billions of dollars of debt.

9.99 was the sweet spot, especially since I can use a streaming website within 30 seconds and have a show streaming in HD with a pop up blocker.

Since access to downloads/streams is very easy, you have to priced competitively moving forward.
