The price of binge-watching is about to go up. Netflix announced today it will be raising the price for all of its subscription plans by $1 to $2.

The streaming giant is investing heavily in programming and original content, hence the increase.

If you have the standard $11 streaming plan, expect a rate hike to $13.

Netflix says it will roll out the rate increase in waves for existing customers. New customers will be charged the larger fees immediately upon signing up for the service.

Hey -- while we're on the subject -- now is a good time to make sure you're not paying for service you don't need. Remember back in the day when DVDs used to come in the mail? You're not still paying for that, are you?
