US Subscribers: Netflix Increase Subscription Cost for Second Time in Two Years

Netflix has started off 2022 with a small price increase of $1 to $2 for its US and Canadian subscribers. For Americans, this is the second price increase in less than a year after a small increase in February 2021. All three plans, Basic, Standard and Premium, have increased in price by $1, $1.50 and $2 respectively. The new prices are shown in the table below.

Tier Jan 2019 Feb 2021 New Price
Basic (SD) $8.99 $8.99 $9.99
Standard (HD) $12.99 $13.99 $15.49
Premium (UHD/4K) $15.99 $17.99 $19.99


There were also slight price increases in Canada for the STandard and Premium packages:

Tier Old Price New Price
Basic (SD) C$9.99 C$9.99
Standard (HD) C$14.99 C$16.49
Premium (UHD/4K) C$18.99 C$20.99

As with previous price increases it is likely that Netflix will honor their current prices for a couple of months (expect an email confirmation from Netflix before the price changes) and new subscribers will pay the updated prices right away.

In comparison, Netflix’s Standard package at $15.49 is now more expensive than HBO Max which is currently on offer for $11.99 per month for a 12-month contract. Disney+ is currently $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year.
