Netflix fee increase will begin in the United States!
The leading platform in the world of streaming was also the first to change the rules of the game, forced by the loss of users and the influence of competition. These included unpopular, but necessary financial decisions to maintain the stability of these services. And they continue. So, Netflix will increase the price of its plans in a few months.
As has been made known through The Wall Street Journal, Netflix will update the rates of its plans once the Hollywood actors’ strike endswhich began in July 2023.
Netflix will increase again
The report states that the increase will begin in the United States and Canada and then it could be extended to other markets. At the moment, Netflix offers three subscription planswhich vary depending on the number of devices that can be connected. The prices in Spain are as follows:
- Two Basic plansessential with ads for 5.49 euros per month and the basic one for 7.99 euros per month and both allow you to watch Netflix on a single screen.
- The Standard plan costs 12.99 euros per month You can watch Netflix on two screens at the same time.
- The Premium plan costs 17.99 per month and you can enjoy broadcasts on four screens at the same time.
Although the increase is taken for granted, It is still unknown how much the impact will be on the price.
Disney+ also increased
But Netflix is not the only platform that will increase. In August of this year, Disney+ also completed a price increase, which for now is only in force in the United States, and announced the arrival of the rumored plan with cheaper ads in 2024.
The monthly subscription to Disney+ in the United States was priced at $7.99. Now that is the price of subscription with ads. Alternatively, The company launched a new ad-free plan, Disney+ Premium, which costs $10.99 per monthor $109.99 per year.
Based on these prices, It is likely that in Spain we will maintain 8.99 euros for the plan with ads and go up to 12.99 euros for the Premium planwith a price of about 119.99 euros per year.
Rising rates for streaming services could force users to filter their preferences even more when getting a service. And after the rise of platforms in the last two years, perhaps it is now that the real conditions that allow the real battle between these platforms to begin are finally on the table.
