The number of people subscribing to Netflix continues to grow.

The streaming giant announced Thursday it now has 139 million subscribers around the world.

And in the last three months of 2018, Netflix added nearly nine million new paid subscribers.

The report comes amid what could be a pivotal year for Netflix.

Earlier this week, the company announced it would raise monthly subscriber prices by one to two dollars per month.

That price hike could help Netflix pay for programming.

The company expected to spend eight billion dollars on programming in 2018.
