If the winter chill is keeping you inside, there will be plenty of new titles to stream on Netflix! This weekend, the streaming giant adds eight new titles to its content catalogue, including four Netflix originals. Joining the already-debuted January 2022 titles will be the third season of the Ricky Gervais-starring comedy-drama series After Life, the stop-motion anthology series The House, and an all-new animated film perfect for the entire family! The new titles will join other titles that have already been added to the library this month, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Stand by Me, and Season 2 of Johnny Test.
Unfortunately for subscribers, viewing this weekend's new titles, as well as all future titles, will cost a little more money. On Jan. 14, the streamer announced a $1 to $2 price hike affecting all three of its subscription plans. Under the price hike, the standard plan now costs $10 per month, the standard plan costs $15.50 per month, and the premium plan, allowing for streaming on four devices at once, costs $20 per month. The price hike went into effect immediately for new subscribers and is set to roll out to existing subscribers in the coming weeks. Keep scrolling to see everything coming to Netflix this weekend, and don't forget to check out all of the titles that will be leaving before the end of the month.
