Early Netflix adopters will soon have to pay as much as everybody else for their streaming content.
Starting in May, Netflix’s standard streaming plan will cost $9.99 a month for everyone. As of now, people who subscribed earlier than May 2014 got to keep their old price of $7.99.
Financial company UBS estimated around 17 million users will have to spend the extra $24 per year. That’s a little over a third of Netflix’s U.S. subscriber base. That is, if they decide to stay.
