Earlier in the year Netflix were spotted testing some new prices for their UK subscribers and they have now confirmed that the prices will be going up – however, not as much as the earlier tests had indicated. In the first price increase for the UK since October 2017 the Basic subscription (1 screen, SD video quality) remains at £5.99 a month and the Standard (2 screens, HD video quality) has increased from £7.99 to £8.99 a month. The highest tier, Premium (4 screens, UHD/4K video quality), has gone up from £9.99 a month to £11.99. The new prices, and previous test prices, are shown below.
|Tier||Current||Test 1||Test 2||New Price|
Current subscribers will pay the new prices in the coming weeks (expect an email confirmation from Netflix before the price changes) and new subscribers will pay the updated prices right away.
As with previous price increases it is likely that Netflix will honour their current prices for a few months before emailing you about your increase. And, if you’re not happy with having to pay a maximum of £11.99 a month then just remember that it’s still considerably less than half the price of NowTV’s full package at £27.96 a month for 2 screens and a restricted number of devices.
