The American platform has just announced a new price increase for its American and Canadian subscribers. After that of last October, when will there be a new increase in France?
The standard subscription, which allows viewing on two screens simultaneously and in HD, now goes to €15.49 instead of €13.99 per month for American Netflix subscribers. It even climbs to €16.49 for Canadian subscribers, with an increase of €1.50. Netflix thus becomes the most expensive streaming platform in the States, even surpassing HBO Max and its $15 monthly subscription. Remember that Netflix had already increased its prices just a year ago in the United States and barely three months ago in France! The French have actually seen their Standard subscription go from 11.99 to 13.49 €, and Premium subscribers from 15.99 to 17.99 €. Even the Essential package that Netflix hadn’t touched before now costs €8.99 instead of €7.99. The American giant justifies itself by claiming to understand “that people have more entertainment choices than ever before and we are committed to providing an even better experience for our subscribers”, said one of its representatives in a press release.
Soon a Standard subscription for more than 15 €?
Even if a new increase for us seems inevitable, Netflix should probably wait a few more months, probably until the next school year, to ask the French to put their hands in their wallets. It’s a safe bet then that the Standard subscription, the most popular, should flirt with the symbolic threshold of 15 € monthly. A sum that should make more than one think before continuing with their subscription. Netflix’s parade is already ready: “We are updating our prices so that we can continue to offer a wide variety of quality entertainment options. As always, we offer a range of plans so members can choose a price that suits their budget”, thus defended the same representative of the platform.
