Netflix January 2019 price increase

We have just left a fantastic December behind us with great new original Netflix content coming to the platform and more.

I just praised Netflix for the Mowgli movie, and most importantly, for the amazing Bird Box movie. It was an awesome feeling watching these movies that would be clear box office success stories if they were shown in the cinema, but instead, we got them delivered straight to our living rooms with our Netflix subscription. But, such movies and TV series don’t come for free, and now Netflix has decided to increase the prices of the different packages.

The new and the old Netflix prices.

The three plansFormer priceNew priceChange in percent (%)
Basic$7.99$8.9912%
Standard$10.99$12.9918%
Premium$13.99$15.9914%

As you can see, the prices have gone up between 12% and 18%, depending on which category you are in. That is a quite nice raise in the prices, but if you are a Netflix fanatic like millions of others worldwide, this will not influence you a lot. Most people gladly pay this amount monthly as long as we get the same amount of high quality TV series and movies delivered into our homes.

It will, however, be interesting to see how the new Disney streaming platform will influence the Netflix viewer base. As people already have subscriptions to platforms such as HBO Now, Hulu, CBS All Access and Netflix, few people are willing to add a new subscription to their list of exisiting subscriptions. So, maybe they will cancel one of their exisiting subscriptions, or maybe they will just leave the new Disney streaming service on the outside?

What do you think? Will the prices change anything?

The prices have already changed on the American Netflix website, and they have also changed in the rest of the Netflix regions worldwide. If you haven’t noticed it yet, you will the next time Netflix takes paid for your active subscription!

If you want to get even more value for your Netflix subscription, make sure to use a VPN that will give you access to even more Netflix regions. In that way, you will be able to stream even more videos and TV series! You can read more about how it can be done here at netflix.fromabroad.org.
