NEWS: Netflix raised its membership rate in early May by $1.00 to $8.99 for new subscribers while existing subscriber rates will be frozen for two years. A couple of weeks into the rate increase, Netflix said that it has seen "small customer reaction." Netflix said that it would significant expand internationally and specifically in Europe for 2H14. It plans to expand its content breath in upcoming quarters with "meaningful" originals in each market that could compete with "the top end of cable." Speaking on CNBC, CEO Reed Hastings added that he does not expect Netflix to introduce advertising now or in the near future.
