Netflix has announced an unfortunate announcement – for its subscribers – that it will be increasing its prices again. There will be a significant increase in the cost of all the streaming packages in the United States and Canada. Note that 2021 marked the death of Netflix free trials worldwide.

For the basic package, we're looking at an increase of $1 per month and for the 4K Premium package, an increase of $2 per month. According to Reuters, a representative of the entertainment giant explained the increases by saying:
