And so it starts. You already only get half a catalog and need to use multiple providers to get everything. Soon it will cost the same as cable and satellite after luring in the numbers and then ppv starts.

The US get a good catalog. Makes sense they pay more than us.

Nope there is actually a very good reason for the increase. Over the past few years Netflix have invested heavily in original content and are forecasting to invest even more. I know they even bought a film studio sometime last year.

>>137 million customers at the end of September.

Even if all of their customers were on the $9 plan (and they're not), that is about R17000m income per month...impressive

They already paid more after Netflix officially supported SA.

Yes there is a good reason. If they want to function on the same level they eventually have to charge the same.

Some of these shows are not cheap. Look at what they paid to just keep running Friends! $100M!
