Netflix Prices Set to Increase for U.K. Subscribers From November

Following yesterday's announcement of price hikes in the U.S., Netflix has now confirmed that some U.K. subscribers can also expect to pay more for the video streaming service going forward.


Those on the Basic tier, costing £6 a month, won't see a price increase. However, that's where the good news ends, because anyone on the Standard tier, which includes shows in HD and the ability to watch on two screens simultaneously, will see their monthly bill rise from £7.50 per month to £8.

Meanwhile, users who pay for 4K HDR privileges and the ability to watch on four screens at once are set to pay £10, up from £9. The cost increases will come into effect beginning November. Netflix said it will inform existing subscribers of the price hikes on October 19.

Germany and France are among the other European countries where prices will rise, while subscriptions were tweaked in Canada, Latin America and some Nordic countries earlier this year.

Netflix is set to debut the second series of its hit original series Stranger Things on October 27. This week, the company also released an official Stranger Things mobile game, which iPhone and iPad users can download from the App Store for free.

Nothing to do with Brexit mate, but if it makes you feel better then carry on using it as a scapegoat.

I didn't realize that brexit also caused the Netflix price increase in the US. I'm now against brexit because it caused the Netflix price increase in the US. Many thanks for posting.

Still a good deal for 4k. But if it goes any higher I think I’ll go to cancelling the service and only paying for individual months (or free trials) when something worth watching comes out.

Also you’re very welcome ☺️

I can’t believe people are actually complaining for 1 £/€/$ price increase for a service that offers so much as such a small price


Do you know what I could do with that £1. Er, ermmm, oh, ah, hmmm. Not a lot actually.

It’s still cheaper than the tv licence I have to pay every year so the BBC can make programming, which they can then try to sell to me again at a later date on UHD Blu-Ray because they didn’t broadcast it in that resolution. Probably.

Programming costs a hell of a lot of money, hopefully Netty will get more quality shows in their lineup.

I'll suck up £10, but one penny more and I'll likely drop a tier. I'm on a 4k plan because I got a new TV, but honestly I watch most stuff on my ipad during my commute so it isn't getting the best from it.

Kinda like how the Leave campaign used the EU as a scapegoat.

Oh and I’m still waiting for that extra £350 million a week for the NHS - give Nigey a nudge.
