Netflix has raised the price of its monthly membership options, and some subscribers have already noticed the difference.
We all saw it coming, unfortunately. However, we wished we had had a little more time. In October 2020, the streamer upped its subscription costs for the first time. The ordinary and premium plans have increased in price to $13.99 and $17.99 per month, respectively. The ordinary plan was initially priced at $12.99 per month, while the premium plan was priced at $15.99 per month.
Netflix has decided to raise the cost of all its plans in 2022. You may wonder why. The reason for this is that in 2021, the streamer’s subscription growth stagnated. Netflix lost over 400,000 customers in just the second quarter of 2021. Even though the streamer was able to recover by the third quarter, the damage had already been done.
It also comes down to the amount of money Netflix invests in original programming for its platform. The streamer constantly produces high-quality stuff that is expensive. As a result, Netflix requires funds in order to continue to produce new episodes and films.
In the end, it’s a business. We’ll have to pay a charge if we want to see high-quality stuff all of the time. Continue reading to learn about the most recent Netflix subscription prices.

How to Save Money on Netflix
When it comes to Netflix, there are several ways to save money. One of the most popular options, as previously mentioned, is to split the cost of a Netflix subscription with friends and family. In this case, the Premium streaming plan ($20) is the way to go, as it unlocks 4K streaming and allows you to watch Netflix on four screens at once.
Be on the lookout for Netflix bundles from internet service providers, TV/smart device companies, and cell phone providers to get the service at a reduced cost (or for free in some cases). T-Mobile customers, for example, can take advantage of a number of Netflix benefits through the company’s Netflix on Us program.
Is Netflix’s DVD-By-Mail Service Still Available?
Remember when Netflix was primarily a DVD-by-mail service, with Netflix Instant serving as a backup? Although much has changed since the company announced its move into streaming in early 2007, the tried-and-true method of receiving DVDs (and now Blu-rays) in the mail is still alive and well.
Visit Netflix’s DVD page for more information.
If you want to add the DVD service back to your plan and feel like you’re back in the early 2000s, or if you missed out when the craze changed the way we watch movies at home, you have two options. The first is the “Standard” plan, which costs $7.99 per month for one DVD and $9.99 for Blu-ray discs. The “Premier” plan costs $11.99 per month for two DVDs or $14.99 for Blu-rays.
There are no late fees with either option, but you will be charged for any discs that you have out when your DVD-by-mail subscription expires (not like that has ever happened to any of us before).
