This is NOT turning out to be a great month for our wallets. First, ClassPass cranked up their prices (up to $190 if you live in NYC) and now Netflix is also hitting us with an increase. The top streaming service first broke the news of their cost change back in January, but it looks like the updates are finally and officially rolling out. Here鈥檚 what you need to know to keep up your nightly binging sesh.

Even if you were grandfathered into that coveted $7.99 deal, your monthly subscription will be going up by two dollars. You鈥檒l be alerted via a pop-up next time you open the website or app. You can either accept the increase or 鈥渃hoose other options.鈥

Should you opt for the latter, you鈥檒l be sent to a page that shows you all the options Netflix offers. If you really want to keep paying $7.99 you can, but it鈥檒l cost you (as ironic as that might be). By paying the minimum you鈥檒l only be able to play Netflix on one screen at a time and everything will be in standard definition. The new $9.99 option allows for streaming of two screens at once and HD quality. We鈥檙e thinking we can scrounge up an extra two bucks for that. PS, should you decide you want to be able to stream on up to FOUR screens at once, you can opt for the $11.99/month plan.

Currently, there is no universal date as to when this price increase will roll out. It鈥檚 mostly dependent on when you first signed up for the service + when your billing cycle ends. If you鈥檙e worried they鈥檒l charge you on the DL, know that you will be notified at least a month before your account changes for good.
