BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - New Netflix subscribers will now have to pay a dollar more.
The company sent an e-mail to subscribers saying it's raising prices to $8.99 per month.
That only applies to new subscribers for now.
Netflix says current members will be locked into their $7.99 a month rate for two years.
Netflix warned last month that it was planning a price increase so it could "continue adding more movies and TV shows."
