Nothing stinks more than bearing bad news (except maybe your filthy gym clothes), but here goes: Netflix just announced its prices are rising…again.
All three of the streaming service’s plans are increasing by a dollar or two, placing them at to $9, $13, and $16 a month, reports CNN Business. Existing customers will reportedly be given a few months before they see the change reflected in their monthly billing cycle.
