(WTNH)–Netflix is raising the prices and not that many people know about it.

According to Yahoo News, about 17 million of Netflix’s standard accounts will go up next month.

Back in May 2014, Netflix moved the price up to $8.99 a month and then to $9.99 a month last October.

At first, existing subscribers were grandfathered in at the original $7.99 a month for the “HD” two-stream plan but those days are coming to an end.

Next month, all grandfathered accounts will be moved to $9.99 for the standard plan.

According to Yahoo, analysts at USB estimated that this change will affect around 37% of US subscribers, or 17 million people!
