In the coming months, Charter Communications will begin charging you more money to access its video-on-demand service.
The cost of accessing the service, called Gtt, will increase by $0.30 per minute starting Nov. 5, 2018.
The price increases are part of a $1.7 billion acquisition Charter is in talks with video-streaming service Netflix, according to a company statement.
Charter plans to begin using Gtt in 2019.
Gtt is a feature of Charter’s $100 billion, 10-year-old service, which launched in June 2019.
Charter also has other video-delivery options.
You can pay $3.99 a month for its “Gig” video-service, which is similar to its own high-speed video-transmission service.
You also can use a $10 monthly subscription to get unlimited video-downloading, or $19.99 per month for unlimited video streaming.
Charter says it will continue to offer Gtt for “longer term” customers through 2026, which means that the price increases will be in place until 2021.
Charter is also in talks to launch a new service that will be available to Charter customers for an unspecified amount of time.
Charter’s plans are part to an agreement it struck with Netflix in June that includes a $100 million cash infusion to support the company’s video-video service.
Charter recently acquired a majority stake in Netflix, which also has a streaming video service called Instant Video.
Charter has been a big player in the video-viewing space since it began offering its video streaming service in 2018.
Charter currently offers services like Sky Video, Sky Player, Sky Go, Charter Video and Charter Plus.
