Netflix hasn’t increased UK prices since October 2017 but that’s about to change.
The streaming service has just revealed that costs are going up from next month with users being forced to pay extra to watch content on the popular service.
Netflix has confirmed that prices will rise for users of the standard tariff and premium tariff with only customers on the basic service unaffected by the hike.
Over the next few weeks, things will go up from £7.99 to £8.99 for those who subscribe to the standard option and from £9.99 to £11.99 if you access the premium option.
Netflix says that from time to time they have to increase the cost “to reflect the significant investments we’ve made in new TV shows and films.”
The price increase will take effect over the coming weeks.
Netflix isn’t the only service which has put up prices recently with Sky and its NOW TV streaming platform both revealing increases.
A Netflix spokesperson said: “We change our prices from time to time to reflect the significant investments we’ve made in new TV shows and films, as well as improvements to our product.
“We have more than 50 productions planned in the UK this year, including new seasons of Black Mirror, Sex Education and After Life.”
Netflix has already raised prices in the US, as well as a number of markets in Latin America and the Caribbean with increases across western Europe also expected.
