Netflix Raises Monthly Rates, Standard Subscription Now $14

Published

on

Netflix is raising the prices for 2 of its subscription plans for the second time since 2019. The premium plan has gone up an additional $2 making the price $17.99 while the standard plan has increased by $1 and is now at $13.99.

What We Know:

  • As of October 29, Netflix raised prices for 2 of their plans. The basic plan remains at $9 per month for 1 screen. There was an increase in subscribers due to the pandemic this year. At least 26 million paid subscribers joined earlier this year.
  • A spokesperson for Netflix says “We’re updating our prices so that we can continue to offer more variety of TV shows and films, in addition to our great fall line up”. According to Vulture, Netflix is expecting more Netflix originals in 2021 as well. Netflix offers plans for everyone so that people are able to choose a plan that works with their budget. When these people subscribe to Netflix, they are usually subscribing to other streaming services as well. 
  • Current members will be notified of this change with the next 30 days before their next billing cycle. New subscribers will see this price change effective immediately.
  • It’s been almost two years since the last price increase. Since this increase was announced, the shares for Netflix were up about 4%. Twitter users have reacted to the increase in prices.

  • The public is hoping that these high prices are worth it with Netflix’s original content increasing within the next year. In addition to the price increase, season 2 of The Mandalorian on Disney+ started streaming this morning as well. It wouldn’t be a surprise if other streaming services, such as HBO Max and Peacock also raised their prices by next year as well.

The price increase in Netflix is expected to hopefully bring in more subscribers in addition to more revenue for the company.

Former NFL Champ Nate Burleson joins CBS Mornings

Published

on

Former NFL player Nate Burleson has officially made his hosting debut on the newly branded morning talk show, CBS Mornings.

What We Know:

  • It was announced earlier this month that Burleson would replace Anthony Mason. Previously Mason joined Gayle King and Tony Doukoupil as host of the former CBS This Morning.  The show was rebranded in tandem to the relocation of their set to Times Square and Burleson joining the cast.
  • Since 2017, former NFL player Burleson has been the host of Good Morning Football on the NFL Network and has served as an analyst on The NFL Today on CBS. Burleson will continue his role on The NFL Today.

  • Burleson is the second former NFL player to join a network morning TV show, with Michael Strahan playing a major role as a co-host on ABC‘s Good Morning America.

Burleson credits Michael Strahan as the ‘blueprint’ for his career path, explaining, “He’s one of those individuals that I took a liking to once I retired because he rewrote the blueprint. I don’t want to say that he is the blueprint, because there has been plenty of players that have transitioned out of the game into TV. There have been African American men and women before him that have done the same thing, but he is a guy that has shown me the lay of the land, especially being a transplant from the West Coast to now New York.”
