Sure, having to pay more stinks—but there’s a silver-screened lining: An extra dollar or two from users could help the company finance the creation of even more addicting shows (because Stranger Things and Narcos need fuel to keep going strong ). “Netflix plans and pricing are adjusted as we add more exclusive TV shows and movies, introduce new product features, and improve the overall experience to help members find something great to watch even faster,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
