Raise your hand if you already know without a doubt that Netflix is bae.

Well, we were waving our hands high as well until the company's CEO, Reed Hastings, recently announced that a Netflix price increase is on the horizon.

"We want to take it very slow," he said. "Over the next decade I think we'll be able to add more content and have more value and then price that appropriately."

Ugh. If that doesn't put you in the mood to binge watch away your despair, then there's an additional Netflix change that just might do the trick.

As pointed out by Seventeen, the streaming service also plans to "motivate people to move up to the two-stream and the high-def and the ultra-high-def [plans]," which might be a code for stopping password sharing amongst those who subscribe to basic plans.

GAH! The thought of a significant price increase feels worse than if our entire Netflix queue somehow vanished into the darkest realms of cyberspace, never to return. Perhaps, we can summon the support of Miley Cyrus, whose Netflix superpowers have proven to be quite useful in the past. All it took was a single tweet from the singer about Grace and Frankie, and just like that, the company green lit a second season for the original series. Seriously, Miley can we get that #KeepNetflixCheap tweet ASAP?

Ah, well. Since change is inevitable, we'll just have to deal. But that doesn't mean we have to like it.
