Netflix UK’s Internet TV and Movie Stream Service in HD Price Hike

Thursday, June 11th, 2015 (4:14 pm) - Score 2,393

Netflix UK, the broadband-based unlimited movie and TV video streaming service, has increased the price of their HD quality Standard Plan for new customers by an inflation busting 7.15% from £6.99 to £7.49 per month. But existing customers are safe.. at least for now.

As usual Netflix put the move down to their on-going efforts to develop new TV shows and bring fresh content into the network, although that’s unlikely to appease all of their customers. On the upside their basic plan remains at £5.99 and the 4K friendly Premium option continues to hover at £8.99.

But as prices for these services continue to rise then they may become less attractive and that’s potentially good news for the more traditional TV subscription services, which a few years down the road (if they’re still alive) could see a resurgence.

Admittedly those who only take one such service probably won’t be too concerned, but if you cram several services like Netflix, NOW TV and Amazon Prime together (i.e. in order to get all the content you want) then the total annual cost to yourself soon begins to mount.

    I don’t mind the hike. If they weren’t making their own shows i might have gotten a little annoyed (probably not) but considering the quality of their original shows the extra small bump is nothing in comparison.

    If it becomes a trend and the prices keeps on going up multiple times per year then yes it may become a problem.

    I don’t watch the tv shows and don’t find the movies are updated enough so will be cancelling my subscription once the price hike affects existing customers.

      *Not updated enough.

    The price will draw people in to see a particular series – ‘Breaking Bad’ being their real triumph – and then people will cancel, as above, because most of the other content is the sort of thing you see in bargain basement bins.

    Isn’t it just way too cheap to have anything particularly interesting to offer; the presumption seems to be that people will have Sky or Virgin Media subscriptions anyway and so won’t pay another, say, £30 per month for supplementary content.

    But isn’t this missing a trick: one of the points of things like Netflix is that, done right, it could *replace* a Sky or VM TV subscription.

    Look into region switching then see the true Netflix content. High quality home grown shows such as OINTB, Daredevil, House Of Cards, Better Call Saul etc.

    Still a bargain in my eyes.
