Netflix Makes Increase To Subscription Price By $3 A Month For Loyal Viewers

Netflix subscriptions in the U.S, Britain and France have gone up and here's why!

Netflix has once again raised up their subscription prices for subscribers who are living in the United States, Britain and France. The popular streaming company has also had 13% in surging shares with almost $9 million in new subscribers joining Netflix around the globe in the third quarter. This surpassed what Wall Street analysts’ forecasted which was $6 million. Netflix has stated that it is expected to have more subscribers in the same quarter.


The streaming company’s performance has been thriving despite the ongoing Hollywood labor tension that has shut down a large portion of U.S production. One reason is that television series and films have continued to be produced overseas, which have garnered a vast majority of the new subscribers. One of the company’s biggest successes is the live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga series, One Piece. This wasn’t the only series that attracted new audiences.

The legal drama series Suits and HBO’s World War Two series Band of Brothers brought an immense number of new viewers. According to Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos says that he is proud of quarterly results.

“These are the times I’m glad we have such a rich and deep and broad programming selection. The same was true during COVID, when we were able to manage the slate through a prolonged and pretty unpredictable production interruption.”

This third-quarter customer increase is noted to be the strongest quarterly uptick since the second quarter of 2020 when lockdowns were happening globally which was surprising to many.
