Netflix wants to shoot its prices up again even so it might be time to finally drop them.
Earlier this week, the streaming service sent a letter to its investors. In it, they write that “as we invest in and improve Netflix, we’ll occasionally ask our members to pay a little extra to reflect those improvements.”
Alright, Netlfix, bro. I just wanna know where these improvements are at because I am struggling to see them. It hasn’t even been a full year since you banned sharing accounts across multiple households.
According to the letter, they’re going to add more live programming such as the SAG Awards, a special tennis match between Rafel Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz and WWE Wrestling. And fair enough, those will draw some numbers. But is it enough to warrant another price hike?'
Besides, in recent years Netflix has kind of fallen off. Yes, they've got a few good shows exclusive to them, but other streaming services have shows that just hit different (Neon has 'Fargo' and 'The Curse' - that's unreal).
One show they've just secured that will keep people paying them is the live-action remake of 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'.
The show's official trailer dropped yesterday and judging from the initial reaction, people are keen as on it, with some YouTube commenters saying it literally brought them to tears.
Anyway, there's not a lot we can do to stop the price rise coming, so I'm off to binge as much as I can.
