The price of a Shudder subscription increased today. Shudder previously confirmed that the price was going up, so even though this is not a sudden price increase, new users will now pay more for the horror-themed streaming service.
Previously, the cost of a monthly Shudder subscription was $5.99. Following this latest price increase, the cost of the monthly plan has risen by $1, taking the new price up to $6.99 a month.
Shudder also offers the option to sign up for an annual plan to save on the cost over 12 months. While the annual Shudder plan was previously priced at $56.99, the yearly subscription has now increased to $71.88 a year, an increase of around $15.
At the new annual plan rate, the average monthly cost has increased from $4.75 to $5.99 a month. Basically, opting for an annual plan now results in the same average monthly cost as the monthly plan was before the increase.

Regardless of whether signing up to Shudder on a monthly or annual basis, the streaming service still provides all new subscribers with a 7-day free trial. It is also worth keeping in mind that AMC Plus can be a good alternative to a standalone Shudder subscription.
AMC Plus brings together content from the AMC, BBC America, IFC Films Unlimited, Shudder and Sundance Now libraries, making it a cost-effective way to access all of these streaming services, including Shudder.
An AMC Plus subscription costs $8.99 a month, which is $2 more than the new standalone Shudder price. Alternatively, the AMC Plus annual plan costs $83.88, which is around $12 more than the standalone annual Shudder plan.
