What’s happening?On May 8, 2019, prices for new Shudder monthly memberships in the U.S. and Canada will increase by a dollar per month. Annual memberships will increase in price equivalent to less than a dollar per month (billed annually).
This change only applies to new members, or returning members whose memberships have lapsed and who have not renewed before midnight EDT on May 8, 2019.
Who is NOT affected by the increase?If you’re a free trial or paid member (US & CA) who joined before midnight EDT on May 8, 2019, via any of the following methods, you will not be affected by this price increase provided you maintain an active subscription. (If you cancel on or after May 8 and come back at a later time, you will pay the new price.)
Yes, you read that right: if you’re a US or Canadian Shudder member subscribed in one of these ways before midnight EDT on May 8, 2019, this price change will not affect you as long as you stay an active and continuous member! That’s how much we appreciate you.
Shudder members in countries other than US & Canada will not be affected by this change.
Who is affected by the increase?
- Anyone in the US or Canada who joins on or after May 8, 2019.
- Anyone in the US or Canada who cancels their membership and subscribes again on or after May 8, 2019, will be charged the new price.
- All current YouTubeTV subscribers (US) will be charged the new price after May 8, 2019, on their regularly scheduled billing date.
Note for Amazon Prime Subscribers
- Amazon handles pricing for Amazon Prime add-on subscribers (US). You can reach out to Amazon Support directly for more information.
Why are we raising prices for new members after May 8, 2019?
As Shudder continues to expand, we are adding more original and exclusive content than ever before. We’re bringing you more movies like Mandy and Revenge. More shows like Creepshow and The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs. More documentaries, more podcasts, and more of the best indie, Hollywood and international horror you can’t find anywhere else.
If you’ve been a direct member all along, you get all this good stuff for the same low price you’ve always paid. Because we 🖤 you.
TL;DR: A small price increase on new members helps us make and acquire more of the shows and movies you love.
