Bloomberg recently uncovered some news that may affect your weekend plans. We now have news that Netflix will be increasing its standard plan by $1. Previously, customers were able to subscribe to the Netflix’s standard plan for $8.99 but the company will now be charging new customers $9.99 for this service. Under the standard plan, customers can stream HD videos on up to 2 different screens, including laptops, TV’s, and mobile devices. Considering the amount of content Netflix provides, this service is still relatively inexpensive. Additionally, customers who are grandfathered into the standard plan for either $7.99 or $8.99 will remain at that price for a set period.
Netflix also offers a basic plan for $7.99 which allows for unlimited streaming on one device, and a premium plan for $11.99 that allows UltraHD (4K) streaming on up to 4 devices.
In other news, Netflix recently updated its apps for Windows 10 devices, improving performance and amending the app’s layout. As with numerous other updates we have seen for Windows 10 apps, it seems many companies are embracing Microsoft’s latest effort. However, if subscription services aren’t your cup of tea, Microsoft provides a-la-cart pricing for both Movies and TV shows through its proprietary online service and app including season passes to popular shows such as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
