Netflix Raises Prices: How Much for You?

Netflix has raised the monthly price of its most popular streaming plan in the U.S. The two-stream HD tier will go from $9.99 to $10.99, while its four-stream “family plan” will go from $11.99 to $13.99 per month.  The streaming service raised prices about two years ago.  They say the extra funds will go toward the billions of dollars they spend on original programming.

Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is taking a leave of absence following a New York Times story that he sexually harassed female actresses, executives, and assistants for decades.  The Times reported that the 65 year old co-founder of Miramax had reached at least eight legal settlements with women over alleged harassment.  Still, his lawyer Lisa Bloom said that he “denies many of the accusations as patently false” and Weinstein has threatened to sue The New York Times over it story.

Opening up at the movies this week:  “Blade Runner 2049” with Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, and Jared Leto; “The Mountain Between Us” with Kate Winslet and Idris Elba; and “My Little Pony.”
