‘Space Force’ Is Already Making People Forgive Netflix For Increasing Prices
For the first time in two years, Netflix customers will have to pay a higher price for the popular video-streaming service. The rate increase means customers now have to pay an extra $1 to $2 more a month, depending on their subscription.
Netflix’s price increase may be a disappointing decision for some, but it’s a necessary move. Netflix spent around $13 billion on content creation and licenses last year, according to Forbes. Considering the video streaming service plans on bringing its customers even more great TV shows and movies this year, it’s understandable they would need to increase prices a little.
Customers were upset with Netflix increasing prices, but ‘Space Force’ is helping
Even though people may not be too happy with the price hike, Netflix has lessened the sting a little by reminding its customers just what kind of fantastic content it is capable of bringing. With its newest series, Space Force, people are already starting to forgive Netflix for the recent price increase. So, just what is it about this new series that is getting fans so excited? Here are a few details about Space Force, and how fans feel about this new show.
Netflix is combining Trump and proven comedy

Space Force will showcase a comedic take on President Trump’s newly proposed space program, also called Space Force. Space.com describes Trump’s Space Force as an entity that will “focus on national security and preserving the satellites and vehicles that are dedicated to international communications and observations.”
Netflix’s announcement of the show Space Force describes it as a show about men and women who have to figure out how to “defend satellites from attacks and perform other space-related tasks … or something.” Just from that brief description, it seems like this is going to be a show that makes fun of Trump’s new proposal. And if we have learned one thing from decades of Saturday Night Live skits, it’s that we Americans do like to make fun of the current affairs of our political leaders.
Netflix’s show is reminiscent of ‘The Office’
The creator of The Office, Greg Daniels and the star of The Office, Steve Carell, have teamed up once again to hopefully bring fans yet another show that is nothing short of comedic gold. They will both be executive producers on the new show. Just because Daniels has not been in front of the camera, he is still just as well-known for his comedy skills as Carell is. Daniels has worked on several comedies throughout the years, including Parks and Recreation, King of the Hill, The Simpsons, and Seinfeld.
People are already in love with the show

Even though there’s not much that we know about the show yet, like who the cast members are or when the show will finally air, the little tidbit of information that we do know about the show is already enough to forgive Netflix for their recent price increases.
In response to the announcement of Space Force, @RobinJOJO said: ” I take back my price increase tweets… thank you Netflix.”
She is not the only one taking back her anger. @mechanitom said: “Dear Netflix, this completely justifies your recent subscription fees increase. Carry on. – Tom.”
In reply to the tweet, @johngermany said: ” I actually started a GoFundMe for them also, if you want to kick in.”
Even though we are awaiting more details about Space Force, it’s already obviously clear that as long as Netflix keeps creating high-quality shows like this one, fans will be willing to forget about any price increase that needs to happen on the future.
