CHICAGO (NewsNation now) – The fall streaming season has arrived and services are making big announcements.

Netflix increased subscription prices for its standard and premium plans in the US Thursday. The Standard plan is now $ 13.99 down from $ 12.99 and the premium plan jumps from $ 15 to $ 17.99.

The streaming giant’s base remains at $ 8.99 per month. The increase will take effect immediately for new customers, and current subscribers must be notified 30 days before their price increase based on their billing cycle.

Netflix plans to release 71 movies on its streaming service in November.

Meanwhile, Disney + is serving up a second season of its blockbuster Star Wars series “The Mandalorian.”

The story follows a bounty hunter’s relationship with a young creature affectionately known as ‘Baby Yoda’. Unlike many other streaming series, ‘The Mandalorian’ releases episodes every Friday instead of all at once. Season 2 has 8 episodes and the first episode is out now.

IMDb TV announced on Thursday that Judge Judy comes to its streaming service.

Judith Sheindlin, whose long-running syndicated courtroom show “Judge Judy” will end production in 2021, will be dishing out her sharp brand of justice on an exclusive US show for IMDb TV.

“I am over the moon to do business with Amazon Studios and it is so exciting to continue this incredible journey with them on a new platform,” Sheindlin said in a statement.

The title and debut date for the courtroom show were not disclosed.
