If I used the service I would not mind, if in return it offered me something more as a long time customer.

A few weeks ago a next door neighbor ordered there broadband service, and got for the same price I pay a 50 Mbps
I have 30Mbps, and Virgin media say my speed will be upgraded to 50 Mbps in 2015.

To be honest that`s a bit of a snub, using there service for 10 years plus for broadband. There is not such thing as customer loyalty or valued. Gone fishing ! as I like to say.

I dont know how the headlines for articles are devised. I recognize that this is a price increase. I hardly think a one dollar a month rise in price is worthy of "jacks monthly membership fee".

@xforce_dac It's a 12.5% increase. If anything else increased in price 12.5% people would lose their minds. That's a $20 a month increase on cable, an extra 50cents / gallon on gas.

I don't mind paying more, If I'm getting more, they need to add more tv shows, more movies. If you watch TV when they air you already seen them all on Netflix, minus the foreign ones, which I then watch but then not all of them are my type, most foreign shows is some type of romantic drama or comedy you can only watch so many of those.
As for movies after about 6 months you pretty much seen it all on there, and I still don't know when new stuff comes, when it does, its like 5 movies per a month, only 1 of them interesting. others are depressing sometimes good independent movies.

so yea basically they need all three companies need to have more varieties.
I got Prime too, and that has the same problem, sometimes feel like sure they have many of the popular tv shows all season minus the newest some that Netflix doesn't, but they are much more limited on the content. Actually they do have more content but only if you pay for them separately, and that's a negative.

Hulu- same bunch of tv shows I watched already.

I don't subscribe to Netflix but since I just bought a smart TV I am considering it. This article and as someone above mentioned the headline is a joke. Look at what we pay for cell phones, cable, internet, even pay per view on cable. If $1.00 more per month is going to make someone not sign up, they shouldn't even be able to afford a TV. Do we stop buying gas when the oil companies raise the price, food goes up every day, I wish my utility rates only increased that much. All the while Obama tells us there is no inflation.

A 12.5% increase in a $600 item like a smartphone is a jack in prices whereas $1 more per month increase in net flix won't really break the bank.

Are you serious? A 12.5% increase in a $600 item like a smartphone is a jack in prices whereas $1 more per month increase in netflix won't really break the bank.

Hundreds of shows, all for free. Why would anyone pay Netflix?
