Update:
Streaming services don’t appear to be worried about scaring off subscribers with higher prices. Apple TV+ is the latest platform to increase its rates.

Those who love to binge-watch series and movies on streaming services have had to fork out more to continue enjoying their pastime this year. Just last week, Netflix announced that it was raising the prices of two of its ad-free plans, hot on the heels of its crackdown on password sharing.

Now, it’s the turn of Apple TV Plus to declare a price hike. The platform, which hosts hit shows “Ted Lasso” and “The Morning Show”, will be increasing its subscription rate by three dollars, from $6.99 to $9.99 per month.
