NOTE: Before you start worrying, this only seems to affect new customers or those changing their plan. No email has been sent out to subscribers and your current plan will still show the old price – you will likely receive an email from Netflix nearer the time when your price will increase.
Netflix have today, rather quietly, just increased their prices. For most people they will be paying an extra 50p ($1 in the US) a month for the Standard 2-screen package – from £7.49 ($9.99) to £7.99 ($10.99). The Basic 1-screen package remains unchanged at £5.99 ($7.99) but the Advanced 4-screen Ultra HD package goes up £1 ($2 in the US) from £8.99 ($11.99) to £9.99 ($13.99).
You can check your current price here: https://www.netflix.com/ChangePlan – which shows your current price and package as well as showing the new prices if you choose to change. At the moment we have not been able to confirm how long your current package price will be available as it still shows your old price for your current plan.
We assume the price increase will affect other regions around the world in a similar way. If you notice the change in price in your region then please do comment below.
