How to avoid the Netflix subscription price rise

Adjust Comment Print

Netflix is raising subscription prices in the USA and parts of Europe as the leading online streaming service invests in more shows and features, the company said Thursday.

Netflix has increased their prices 60 percent since 2011. They actually have not introduced a price increase since 2014 and since then they have also introduced a lot of exclusive content. The streaming service has found that members don't mind paying a few more dollars for a more user-friendly experience. That's a €1 increase, not too bad.

Netflix has treaded lightly with price increases since 2011, when it suddenly hiked prices 60% for streaming and DVD-by-mail subscribers.

The date that current subscribers will be notified depends on their billing cycle, but notification will begin from Thursday 19 October.

There will be no change to its basic so-called "one single screen" subscription which is €7.99 a month. In August, Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, told Variety that the company planned to spend about $7 billion for original programming next year.

To add to it, Haque said that Bangladesh had given a written proposal to Myanmar on the repatriation of the immigrants. But Mr Lowcock said he believed a "high-level" team would be able to visit the area in the next few days.


You'll find the screen above with three different subscription options. Netflix has more than 53 million USA subscribers to the plan, which includes HD streaming and allows programs to be viewed simultaneously on two different internet-connected devices.

The standard United Kingdom price plan will rise by 50 pence, from £7.49 to £7.99, whilst the premium price plan will rise by a whole pound, meaning it will now cost £9.99 a month.

NETFLIX prices are about to increase - and it won't leave you feeling chill. In 2011, they offered a DVD and streaming service for under $10.

"We would expect mgmt. would be unlikely to implement such a price increase if USA subscriber trends were disappointing, bolstering our confidence further". The firm order for 75 aircraft had a list price of US$5.6 billion, although large orders typically secure large discounts.

It's understandable that people would be upset over price increases, but these probably aren't the last ones that consumers will have to deal with.
