"Netflix will be releasing a number of our members from price grandfathering on the HD plan," the company said in a statement.

In May, U.S. subscribers will be removed from the grandfathered plan. They will have the option to either pay $7.99 for Netflix's SD plan or continue with the company's HD plan for $9.99.

U.K. subscribers will begin to be moved off the old plan beginning later this month.

The rate increase is not exactly a surprise. The company has been slowly increasing its prices.

Some people were pretty devastated that the $2 price increase might mean they would have to part with the video streaming service.

To see if your subscription might be subject to a rate increase, go to your Netflix account profile and click "Your Account." A message similar to this will appear under "Plan Details."

Netflix will also notify affected members by email.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
