Fans of Netflix will have to pay more now as it has raised its price again by 13% to 18%, surpassing all its price hikes since its launch 12 years ago. Netflix’s 4th price hike has resulted in the company’s stock rising up more than 6 percent in a trade early this morning. The company last raised rates in October 2017, whereby its shares rose 3 percent.

Netflix’s Basic plan would now cost $9 (as increased from $8), HD Standard plan would cost $13 as opposed to the earlier $11, and the 4K Premium plan would be $16 instead of $14.

Among newly emerging competitors, the increase in revenue can be beneficial for Netflix regarding the company is paying for its investment in original shows and films and paying off the substantial debts it incurred after fending off streaming threats from Disney, Apple, and Amazon.

It is also to be noted that Netflix’s previous rate hikes have had little effect on subscriber growth and have helped diversify and increase the stock. Netflix reported that in the last quarter, the domestic subscriber count totaled around 58 million in the United States and more than 78 million subscribers elsewhere. Moreover, after gaining almost 40 percent of FAANG stocks in 2018, Netflix was declared the best performing of the so-called FAANG stocks that year, surpassing the likes of Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Google-parent Alphabet.

Analysts at Goldman Sachs further reckoned that Netflix would encounter strong earnings (a 20 percent raise for its stocks) in the fourth-quarter results this year. Netflix has already gained 30 percent in the first few weeks of 2019.
