Nothing stinks more than bearing bad news (except maybe your filthy gym clothes), but here goes: Netflix just announced its prices are rising.

The streaming service’s standard and premium plans are increasing by a dollar or two to $11 and $14 a month, respectively, for new subscribers, according to Money(Existing customers will reportedly be given at least 30 days notice before the hike goes into effect.)  But, if you (or your sister, or ex-boyfriend, or second cousin, twice removed) have the $8 basic plan—breathe a mindful sigh of relief: That price is staying put for the time being.

The streaming service’s standard and premium plans are increasing by a dollar or two to $11 and $14 a month, respectively.

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.

While binge-watching might be bad for your health, it sure is good for the soul, especially with cozy-forward hygge season upon us.

These Netflix movies will totally inspire your fall beauty refresh. Looking for more of a mood boost? These shows will do the trick.
