Netflix hiking prices by

Existing customers will have grace periods of varying lengths. Pricing for the less popular 1 viewer/no HD and 4 viewer/4K plans isn’t affected.

Netflix also carried out a $1 price hike last year, while promising existing customers won’t see a hike for two years. A hike for European subs was enacted in August.

With Netflix having guided for 69.1M global subscribers at the end of Q3, a $1/month hike for the company’s entire subscriber base would (in theory) generate over $800M in annual revenue. The additional funds could help pay for streaming content obligations that totaled $10.1B at the end of Q2.

Shares have spiked higher after previously trading down as much as 5.1%.

I personally gave up Netflix there wasn’t much for me personally to watch. Each is different and I realized that I was searching more and watching less. These days, I just rent long tail content DVDs from the town library. Or something on HBO Now.

But this is the power of numbers. $12 per year wouldn’t bother anyone who has broadband connection at home and is watching video for entertainment. But for 40m users (assume rest are still $8 or $12 plans), this gives a solid $500 million to Netflix. Wow!

Total opposite here. My wife and I frequently go without cable TV. The only reason I have it now is because it was a package that was something like $10 extra a month above just internet. When our contract is up, I’ll be going back to just internet if there’s not a great deal.

Between Netflix and Amazon Instant Video/Prime, I can watch any show I want and do it cheaper than a cable package! If I can’t find it for free, I just buy the current season and watch them as they come out. Then you own them forever and can re watch them ad free

Although I like the Amazon Prime streaming, I hope people stay away from their pay per view temptations.

To financially support any pay per view system is a decision that ultimately redounds to the disadvantage of consumers. The more money that content owners can make on their content via pay per view outlets, the less likely they will be to license that content to an all you care to watch platform like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Instead, since most of the current pay per view content is available via Netflix DVD rentals, it makes good sense for consumers to enjoy it that way.

How can that be "optimistic" if it is the number?

The math is this market cap is no longer directly related to fundamentals. That should be clear to a blind person. A stock "certificate" is like a dollar bill. The only time it’s intrinsic value will matter is when there is no desire for investors to own the stock AND there isn’t any intrinsic value. What stock still trades with any relation to the underlying "value" of the company. When does this even matter? When/if the company dissolves is the only time I can think of.

"The only time it’s intrinsic value will matter is when there is no desire for investors to own the stock AND there isn’t any intrinsic value."

Not true just ask the Durch tulip owners back in 1637. As someone who has lived through the previous "dotcom bubble", I can only tell you to be careful. At some point, actual financial returns matter. Maybe not today, maybe not not next week, but at some point. Companies like Cisco and Microsoft had real intrinsic values back then and ever since, yet their equity values are a fraction of what they were back in March of 2001. Enjoy the ride and the great trading in NFLX, it won’t last forever. Reed Hastings himself said that they’re only targeting 5 6M net new subs in this region through 2019 at least. I understand that this eventually trickles down to all US and Canadian subs so I was giving them the benefit of the doubt. No doubt NFLX has some pricing power, however, they also have debt and obligations that are growing much faster than revenues, cash flows, or earnings. Company will be fine. Equity holders will be at risk.

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!


What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.


Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet.  He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.


Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
