Netflix Increases Prices On All Streaming Plans Effective Immediately

 

 In a recent announcement, popular streaming service Netflix confirmed that it’s prices are going up!

In case you’re wondering, it’s not just some plans being hit with an increase, but all of them in both the U.S. and Canada. @CNN reports, in the U.S., the subscription price for the standard plan increases to $15.49, the basic plan rises to $9.99 and the premium plan is now $19.99. A Netflix spokesperson spoke about the latest price increases.

“We understand people have more entertainment choices than ever and we’re committed to delivering an even better experience for our members. We’re updating our prices so that we can continue to offer a wide variety of quality entertainment options. As always we offer a range of plans so members can pick a price that works for their budget,” they said.

Meanwhile, Canadian Netflix subscribers are also included in the pricing increase. In Canada, the price for Netflix’s standard plan went up $1.50 to $16.49—and the premium plan went up $2 to $20.99 Canadian dollars, although the basic plan was unchanged.

The reasoning for the company raising its prices is said to be due to market saturation and increasing subscribers. The streaming service market now has more options than ever in comparison to when Netflix originally created the marketplace back in the early 2000s.

Donald Trump

@HuffPost reports, during an interview with FOX News following the confirmation that Elon Musk was officially the new owner of Twitter, Donald Trump assured his fanbase that despite the new ownership he will not be returning—choosing instead to use his own Truth Social platform that was launched back in February. “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth,” he said, before adding that he thinks that Elon Musk will likely “make improvements” to Twitter and stated that [Musk is] a “good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”

Trump wasn’t done with his comments and also took the time to claim that his platform is doing better than Twitter:

“We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on Truth is much better than being on Twitter. Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can. The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter. We want liberty and justice and fairness in our country, and the more we can have open, the better. I don’t view that [Musk’s Twitter] as a competition for what I am doing.”

 As we previously reported earlier today, after weeks of intense speculation, it was finally made official that Elon Musk would be the new owner of the company after purchasing it for $44 billion.

TikTok & Netflix Suspends Services In Russia Amid The Ongoing Invasion Of Ukraine–TikTok Suspends New Content & Live Streaming Due To New ‘Fake News’ Law 

The list of companies that have suspended their services in Russia continues to grow. On Sunday, TikTok and Netflix joined the list. TikTok has not completely suspended the use of their app, but only certain features. While a rep for Netflix has confirmed that the streaming service has been suspended in Russia.

According to NBC News, on Sunday, TikTok announced, that they have suspended new content and live streaming abilities on their platform in Russia. The suspension is due to Russia’s new “fake news” law, which has now made it an offense to “disseminate what it described as ‘fake’ information about the country’s armed forces.” TikTok said in a statement, “In light of Russia’s new ‘fake news’ law, we have no choice but to suspend live streaming and new content to our video service in Russia while we review the safety implications of this law.”

They continued to say, “Our in-app messaging service will not be affected. We will continue to evaluate the evolving circumstances in Russia to determine when we might fully resume our services with safety as our top priority.”

However, when it comes to Netflix, their service has been suspended in the country. The Hollywood Reporter states that a Netflix rep said, “Given the circumstances on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia.”

Many major companies such as Disney and Warner Bros. have announced that they were pulling their films from the country due to the invasion.

As previously reported, earlier this week, Apple announced that it would suspend product sales in Russia, and limit the access to some of their digital services.
