Thanks for this heads up. Any news about the UK?

I will say, when they do this in the UK I am cancelling (largely on principal of it).

I do not like at all the fact that they blocked VPNs and DNS uses to see the other regions as the UK gets next to nothing compared to the USA.

So why should we pay more for lesser service than we got for £6 when we could use DNS/VPNs. (and before someone says it, it will not be increased in price to get more content)

The problem is they have alienated so many people blocking VPN/DNS. So asking long time subscriber to now pay more will just be a thing too far and cause them to cancel their subs entirely

I know I am going to

I wonder if the current $11.99 plan (four screens plus ultra HD) will also go up.

I Have that plan I don’t think it will apply to us on the $11.99 plan but if it does netflix better email me with the price change or I will be less than happy.
