“We change pricing from time to time as we continue investing in great entertainment and improving the overall Netflix experience,” the company said in a statement to the Associated Press.

According to its last quarterly report, Netflix had 137 million subscribers worldwide, including 58 million in the U.S.

One Twitter user reacted to the price hike by writing: “Everyone bitching over $2 luke…why? Do you expect to keep paying nothing for awesome original add-free content? Thats not really how the world works…. might wanna climb off that entitled high horse…”

While another commenter noted: “I’ll continue paying $15/mo for the amazing content HBO puts out, but no, I am not paying $13/mo for 13 Reasons Why, House of Cards, or whatever other crap Netflix is putting out. And they will probably hike the price again in a few more years.”

This marks the fourth time the company has raised its U.S. prices. The last increase came in late 2017.

There are some concerns that higher prices could trigger a wave of cancellations.
