3. Netflix Prices: We knew it was too good to be true. Netflix said it will be increasing prices -- at least for new customers. "We have greatly improved our content selection (in the U.S.) since we introduced our streaming plan in 2010 at $7.99 per month, Our current view is to do a one or two dollar increase, depending on the country, later this quarter for new members only," the company said in a letter to shareholders. Company stock jumped at the news that Netflix gained 2.25 million streaming customers to its U.S. service.
