Netflix just hiked prices, but a new service streams movies and TV for free. Here’s how to ‘dive’ in

Still smarting from news that you’ll have to pony up more for your Netflix subscription?

On Tuesday, the streaming service announced that it would raise the subscription price on its most popular membership option from $11 to $13. That’s only two bucks, sure. It’s also Netflix’s biggest price hike yet.
