Effective immediately for new accounts going forward. A price hike is on the way for Netflix Canada subscribers as competition heats up among the biggest streaming video services. Netflix’s standard plan will now cost $3 more — or $13.99 a month — to watch content on two screens at a time.
The basic plan — which does not offer high-definition video and only allows one stream — rises a dollar to $9.99 a month.
Premium plan subscribers pay $3 more — or $16.99 a month — for up to four simultaneous streams and ultra high definition 4K video.
Netflix says the higher prices are effective immediately for new subscribers, while existing users will be notified by email before their bills rise in the coming weeks
