Netflix Canada to Raise All Subscription Plans Prices by $1

Announcements

Netflix Canada is hiking all of its subscription plan prices by $1 amidst an increase in its spending and a huge increase of competition.

The different TV networks have been slowly withdrawing their shows from Netflix to play them exclusively on their own networks. Hulu for instance is a joint project between ABC, Time Warner, Fox and others. These companies have been removing their shows from Netflix to play it on there or other networks they own. Disney is also planning on launching its own exclusive Disney channel soon.

Amongst these changes, Netflix has been spending tons of money to produce original content that will keep it relevant as shows disappear from its network. Netflix plans to spend over $6 Billion USD this year on original content.

And now we pay the price! All 3 Netflix Canada subscription plans will increase by $1. The new Netflix prices are:

  • Basic Plan (1 Screen) $8.99 (was $7.99)
  • Standard Plan (2 Screens & HD) $10.99 (was $9.99)
  • Premium Plan (4 Screens Ultra HD) $13.99 (was $12.99)

If the market becomes exceedingly fragmented and inconvenient and it’s Cable Chaos 2.0 I know I’ll personally move back to torrenting again.

    you should be ashamed of yourself for promoting torrenting on a major platform like this, or in general. Yes Netflix is a paid subscription service but it’s legal. If you don’t want to pay the price, then don’t consume the content.

    Did they not just make a price increase this summer? WTH ? Another dollar ! Worse than our provincial government ….

    @a, BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol which is used to distribute data and electronic files over the Internet. There’s nothing illegal about BitTorrent.

    You know what she means. However, I find netflix reasonably priced, if you look how cable tv has gouged the consumer for way to long. They are coming up with original content, and have so many licenses, that $15 is a steal of a deal! They wont loose my patronage.

    Old news, I’ve been paying the “new price” since last month.

    More money for less content= more downloading and streaming 🙂

    soon streaming services will cost same as cable packages.

    Maybe if Canada got the same selection the US does it would be worth the price, but once you’ve watched the original series I don’t find any value in a subscription each month
