Netflix said its subscription plan for unlimited movies and TV shows streamed over the Internet and unlimited DVD deliveries - with one DVD out at a time - will increase by $1 a month to $9.99. Prices for other plans allowing for more DVDs out at a time are also going up.
Existing members will see the price increase in January, while new members will face the higher prices immediately.
Netflix is also launching a $7.99 a month streaming-only plan in the U.S. to accommodate the online shift.
