Netflix, the best thing since sliced bread, announced today they’ll be hiking up their monthly subscription fee.

“To continue adding more TV shows and movies including many Netflix original titles, we are modestly raising the price for some new members in the U.S., Canada and Latin America,” a Netflix rep said.


Starting on November 11, the streaming service will charge $9.99 a month to new customers. Existing customers will continue to pay $8.99 a month until October 2016. The basic plan is still $7.99 and the premium plan will stay locked in at $11.99.

Even Taylor Schilling has to fork out the money for the new subscription price!

That extra dollar is worth it if you ask me. Orange is the New Black, The Fall, House of Cards, Narcos, and Sense8 alone make $9.99 worth it.

On top of that, they have a bunch of new shows coming out before the end of the year. In November Aziz Ansari’s Netflix original show Master of None will premiere. With Bob and David, a comedy sketch show, and Marvel’s Jessica Jones will also premiere this year.

Add some snacks (sour candy $2.99, chips $2.99, and cheap wine $9) and Netflix and chill is still pretty affordable.

Now excuse me while the cats and I get roped into watching 15 episodes of Law & Order: SVU (the later seasons).
