Some UK Netflix customers will be seeing a little bit more coming out in their direct debit payments. The streaming service has told its patrons that they will in fact be upping their prices from next month.

The price hike is reflective of an increase in content spending on their side and a need to make their pricing reflect that.

The basic monthly package plan remains at £5.99, but the standard monthly package will go up from £8.99 to £9.99 and the premium one will rise from £11.99 to £13.99.

This may be a reaction to rivals Disney+, who announced a price £2 per month increase to £7.99 or £79.90 for a full year. This move falls in line with Netflix US who also raised their prices last month.

One things for sure Netflix are as popular as ever with subscriber numbers booming during the pandemic, with almost 16 million new customers added worldwide in the first three months of 2020 alone.
