Netflix increasing prices for Irish customers

A spokesperson for Netflix told that customers will start notifying its Irish customers about the increases on 19 October.

NETFLIX IS INCREASING its prices for some of its Irish viewers.

Some customers will be charged an extra €1 or €2 per month – depending on what plan they are on.

Netflix will now charge €10.99 per month instead of €9.99 for a plan that allows people to watch programs on two different internet-connected devices at the same time and includes HD.

Meanwhile, customers who have signed up to watch four screens at the same time – using the 4S plan that includes ultra high definition when available – will be charged an extra €2 with their monthly bill going up to €13.99.

The plan that limits subscribers to one screen at a time without high-definition will remain at €7.99 a month.

A spokesperson for Netflix told that customers will start notifying its Irish customers about the increases on 19 October and they will have a month to accept the higher rates, switch to a cheaper plan or cancel the service.

However new customers will be charged the higher prices with immediate effect.

In a statement Netflix said, “From time to time, Netflix plans and pricing are adjusted as we add more exclusive TV shows and movies, introduce new product features and improve the overall Netflix experience to help members find something great to watch even faster.”
