Your binge-watching habit is getting a little more costly. 

Netflix Inc has raised the monthly subscription fees for two of its three main plans by $1 and $2 respectively, according to details published on the company's subscription page on Thursday.

The streaming service's midrange plan, which allows you to watch on two devices at the same time, was increased to $10.99 per month from $9.99, according to the details on the page. 

The top-tier plan -- for streaming on four screens in high definition -- was raised to $13.99 per month from $11.99. The price hikes won't exactly break your bank, but those extra bucks a month could add up to a latte or two over time. 

Good news for those of you who aren't into sharing your Netflix logins with friends and exes, the basic plan fee is staying at $7.99.

The price hikes will start in November, depending on your billing cycle, technology website Mashable reported. 

The higher pricing comes as the video streaming service spends heavily on getting original content and expanding outside the country.
