(CNN) – It’s going to get more expensive for you to Netflix and chill. Next month, for some subscribers, prices will go up, but there may be a new streaming service that competes with Netflix and it’s cheaper too.
Netflix is rewarding its longtime customers, kind of. Starting in May some people will see a 10 dollar a month charge for Netflix’s most popular plan.
Depending on how long you’ve been a customer, you’ll see an increase of 1 to 2 dollars, loyalty matters.
The longer you’ve been with Netflix the more you’ll wait before your price options change. Netflix is calling it un-grandfathering.
The company says you’ll get an email before you owe more and the new fee will happen sometime this year.
Netflix also has a cheaper plan, but it comes with restrictions. Such as only one person on the account at a time or streaming only in standard definition.
If you don’t like the change there are competing services. According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon will have a new streaming service for $8.99.
Not only is it a dollar cheaper than Netflix’s most popular plan, but the service will be stand-alone.
Meaning you don’t have to sign up for prime, Amazon’s free shipping membership.
No matter which plan you pick or how you stream a little competition between companies could mean more savings for you.
