Netflix experienced a stellar Q4 2015, reporting a huge $1.82 billion in revenue, and profits of only $43 million. This had share prices rising 7% in after-hours trading.
But, the streaming giant announced it now has over 75 million subscribers, with 45 million of those in the United States. Netflix noticed record growth in international markets for the three-month period, with 5.59 million new subscribers to Netflix, with 4.04 million of those outside of the United States, compared to 1.56 million new US-based subscribers.
The company will be increasing the price of its packages by $1 or $2 for existing users, with the new updating pricing already applied for new users as of late last year. Soon, Netflix will remove the grandfathered pricing, forcing everyone to pay $7.99 per month for non-HD streaming, $9.99 per month for HD streaming and 4K streaming will cost $11.99 per month. The company isn't just going to be holding all of that money in their pockets, as they have recently expressed they're spending $6 billion throughout 2016 on 600 hours of original content, as well as new TV series and movies that will be constantly added to Netflix.
