Why are Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services getting more expensive?

Streaming services are at the mercy of their media companies. If you want ESPN you’re going to get Hulu and Disney+ whether you like it or not because they’re owned by Disney. 

Not to mention the pandemic created a streaming boom putting pressure on streaming services to pump out more content. The budgets for these shows and movies have definitely increased as well.

The price increase could also be a solution to the password-sharing problem. More people using one account means fewer subscriptions. They have to break even somehow. Not to mention with all these streaming options I'm sure some of them aren’t going to last.
