Netflix increases prices in Germany

After the streaming service Netflix has already increased its prices in other countries, German customers will also have to dig deeper into their pockets. Two of the three subscription offers cost more with immediate effect.

Price increases in other countries

Those who live in the UK, Austria, Australia or the US have, in all likelihood, already been paying more for their Netflix subscription for some time. Now the company is following suit in Germany and has announced that it will be increasing prices for new customers with immediate effect and for existing subscriptions in the coming month. Existing customers are to be informed at least 30 days before the price increase in order to be able to cancel in time if they do not agree with the new prices.

The basic price will not increase

Meanwhile, those who have taken out a basic subscription or are planning to do so can rejoice: the price of the cheapest offer remains unchanged. It continues to be 7.99 euros per month. This rate allows streaming in SD quality on one device. Downloads are also only possible with one device. With the standard rate, streaming is possible in HD quality and on two devices at the same time. Downloads can also be made with two devices. The price in this tariff increases from EUR 11.99 to EUR 12.99 per month. UHD, HDR, Dolby Atmos, and the parallel use of four devices are available in the Premium rate. The price for this tariff increases from 15.99 euros to 17.99 euros per month.

Netflix justifies the price increase also with the constantly increasing value of its own offer: The price increase ensures that continue to invest in new products and the constantly growing portfolio of films and series to further increase. The increase in investments in the German-speaking region was also mentioned in a statement.
