Started from May, 2015, Netflix increased the charging standard to $ 8.99 to its new US subscribers. It made another adjustment last October, increased to $ 9.99. However, the previous two adjustment did not mean a lot to its regular subscribers.

These favorable polices will come to an end to its regular users in the following months. Netflix claimed that the firm will end those measures in succession in 2016. It will carry out the charging standard to its regular subscribers from May. The process may take for a while but it will send notifications by email to those subscribers.

Netflix revealed that the regular subscribers account for ove half of its US subscribers. It announced on Monday that it has 45.71 million subscribers in US that means at least 22 million Netflix subscribers are affected the new charging standard.

Netflix predicted that only a few subscribers are unsatisfied with the new charging standard as the regular subscribers get accustomed to using Netflix service. And Netflix keeps improving its service and importing more contents.

United bank of Switzerland analyst assumed 3% to 4% subscribers will cancel their subscription.

Netflix indicated that it will carry out the same charging standard to its international subscribers though most of its subscribers are from US.
