Another price hike is on the way for Netflix subscribers in Canada as the competition hits among the biggest streaming video services.
The company behind Narcos And Orange is the New Black Is introducing its biggest price increase for both new subscribers and current members.
The Basic Netflix Canada design – which does not offer high-definition 4K video and allows streaming on one device at a time – rises a dollar to $ 9.99 a month.
Netflix's standard design will now cost $ 3 more – or $ 13.99 a month – to watch content on two devices at the same time.
Premium Subscribers pay $ 3 more – or $ 16.99 a month – to watch TV shows and movies on four devices at the same time and HD and behind HD video.
Netflix says the higher prices are effective for new subscribers, while the existing users will notify email before their bills rise in the coming weeks.
The company has increased prices for most plans by a dollar over a year and a half ago.
Helps fund new series, films
Netflix says the market will support Apple's next-generation TV series and films and overall improvements to the Netflix platform.
But the company also faces deep competition next year as the number of streaming platforms in the Canadian Market with attractive offerings grows.
Earlier this month, Master Media introduced a higher level of its crew streaming service that includes a selection of recent Hollywood movies and new HBO programs. The package, dubbed Crave +, costs about $ 20 per month.
Next year, Disney jumps into the market with its own streaming platform. Disney + is expected to be stored with movies and original series as a prequel to Star Wars: Rogue One And a Marvel superhero show based on the character Loki from Thor And The Avengers.
Other platforms can also create recordings, including a new service operated by critics that specializes in classic films, and cbs all access, which is capturing its library of original shows that include Tell me a story And Funny angel.
