Enjoy your $9.99 Netflix subscription while it lasts, because prices for the streaming service are about to go up-but only in the U.S. The company's basic single stream service will remain $7.99 per month.

Subscribers won't see the updated price points on their bills until November, depending on users' bill cycles, but Netflix said customers will be notified of the increases in their October bill statements.

Wall Street appeared to approve of the move, as Netflix shares were up almost 4% to $191 apiece in midday trading.

Yankees will start Gray in game one of ALDS
Who could forget one of the most memorable home runs in World Series history? I like the Dodgers out of the National League. A year after winning its first six postseason games, and in this season of streaks, Cleveland hopes to do it again.

Bad news, Netflix members: prices are going up.

The price increase was limited to the U.S. and a handful of European countries including France, Britain and Germany, Netflix said.

The stand-alone online streaming service of HBO NOW costs $14.99 per month, while cable providers offer HBO GO subscriptions for varying charges - $17.99 with DIRECTV, $15 with DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ: DISH). The company is raising prices for customers with the "Standard" and "Premium" service packages, Mashable reported Thursday.

Las Vegas PD: Paddock spent decades acquiring ammo, lived secret life
Danley lived with Paddock in his single-family home in Sun City Mesquite, a retirement community along the Nevada-Arizona border. He last communicated with him over text, asking if their 90-year-old mother was okay after she lost power during Hurricane Irma.

Last quarter, Netflix posted a total 5.2 million new memberships - 2 million more than analysts had predicted - to hit a global figure of 104 million. Next year, Netflix will likely spend $7 billion, chief content officer Ted Sarandos said earlier this week at a Vanity Fair entertainment conference in Los Angeles. Netflix has also benefited from a low cost and widespread support across televisions, set-top boxes, video game consoles, and other hardware, making it cheap and easy for users to access its content. Hulu pricing on content without commercials costs $11.99 per month. The change will roll out to existing United States members "over the course of the next several months", Netflix said.

Shares of the Silicon Valley-based company jumped more than four percent to $192.44 (R 2633.76) in trading following news of the relatively small price hike.

Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Chargers - 10/1/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
In the first two games of the season, the backfield accounted for just 104 yards and no TDs on 33 carries (3.2 yards per carry). Of course, upsets happen and the Chargers will win one of these games that they should have no chance in.
