The monthly rate is increasing by $1 per month for new Netflix online streaming subscriptions.
Current subscribers will continue paying their current rate if they bought a term longer than a month. When Ashley and I purchased our 60" Samsung flat panel TV it included a $100 credit to be redeemed for a variety of services. We chose to redeem the credit for a one year Netflix subscription. We have a locked in special offer rate until December 2014. At that point we will be asked to pay $8.99 per month if we chose to renew.
Rate before increase: $7.99/month
Rate after increase: $8.99/month
A note to current members.
Netflix says in their email. "Price is guaranteed so long as you remain a member on your current plan." So if you cancel for a month then return to Netflix you will be required to pay the higher rate. If you continue to keep your current plan active then your rate will remain at $7.99
