Netflix has begun telling Canadian customers that their bills will be going up starting July 1st due to a recent change to the federal tax law. The streaming giant says it will be adding GST or HST to its monthly fee in compliance with changes made by the Liberal government. It says the tax rate will vary depending on the rates in individual provinces. All international streaming services available in Canada are being required to start collecting sales tax on digital products and services in order to level the playing field with Canadian companies already required to do so.
