Re-watching Gilmore Girls for the zillionth time just got a bit more expensive, because Netflix just announced a price increase on its three streaming plans for both new and existing customers in the United States.

The streaming platform’s basic plan, which allows you to watch content on one screen, will go from $7.99 to $8.99 per month. The 2S plan, which allows two screens to stream at the same time in HD, will increase by $2—$10.99 to $12.99 per month. Additionally, Netflix’s Premium subscription, a family plan that allows four screens to stream in Ultra HD 4K format, will see a $2 increase as well—going from $13.99 to $15.99 per month.

The price increase will go into effect immediately for new members and will be rolled our over the next few months for existing subscribers.

This is the second major price increase in recent years, with the last one occurring in November 2017.

Welp, while we hate seeing our—or our parents’—bill go up, access to incredible new content is definitely worth it. Like the upcoming third season of Stranger Things, which hits Netflix this summer. Here’s hoping the price changes also allow the streaming giant to purchase the rights to old favorites like Friday Night Lights as well.
