Netflix Australia has announced it’s hiking up the price for premium subscribers, which… uh… does not annoy me too much, as the headline gives away.
The new change kicks off today, with Netflix’s premium subscription plan increasing from $17.99 to $19.99 per month.
The $9.99 basic plan and $13.99 standard subscription fees won’t change.
The different plans pretty much determine how many devices you can stream Netflix on at the same time, and how many devices you can download titles on. So on the premium plan, you can stream Netflix on four devices, and download them on four devices as well. On the standard plan, it’s two devices. And on the basic plan, it’s one.
In a statement to Newscorp, a Netflix spokesperson said the sort of thing you’d expect: “We change our prices from time to time and continue to invest heavily to grow in the depth and breadth of our content such as new shows like The Politician, Unbelievable, well-loved series like Stranger Things, The Good Place, and The Crown, as well as improvements to our products.”
The last time Aussie Netflix users saw an increase in price was in June 2017, when the basic, standard, and premium plans went up by $1, $2, and $3 respectively.
Netflix was introduced to Australia in 2015.
Look, this is hardly a surprise. The price was bound to go up, considering the same thing recently happened in both the UK and the United States of A.
In comparison, the forthcoming Disney+ will set you back $8.99 a month, or $89.99 per year. And Stan‘s basic, standard, and premium plans cost $10, $14, and $17 a month respectively.
