No chill, Netflix. No chill. A $1 price increase = $12 annual = One Chipotle burrito bowl WITH guac, like a king. On the macro economic scale, Chipotle better be ready for millennials to scale back their burrito consumption so they can literally stay in the game of Netflix and Chill.
Then again, if you aren’t hitting up your rich buddy Tom for his Netflix password, you aren’t really doing Netflix right.
Netflix said Thursday it will be increasing its standard monthly price to $9.99 a month, starting Nov. 11.
The price hike will only immediately affect new customers and existing customers will continue paying $8.99 a month until October 2016.
The company’s basic plan, which does not provide for high-definition video playback and can only be used on one screen at a time, will remain at $7.99 a month.
Netflix’s premium plan will also remain steady at $11.99 per month.
The good news is that if you currently have a Netflix account, the price hike won’t effect you until next year:

Time to bring back Blockbuster and chill… Or just get Amazon Prime like an adult and never look back.
