Netflix raises its rates in Europe again | Digital Trends Spanish

Netflix has bad news for its European subscribers. The giant of streaming the price of its rates has begun to rise in some countries of the old continent.

France, whose prices were until now the same as in Spain, has been the first victim due to the increase in rates. In France, customers of the service will have to pay up to two euros more to continue enjoying the premium plan, whose price goes from 15.99 to 17.99 euros (2 euros more). The basic plan goes up from 7.99 to 8.99 euros (1 euro more) and the standard plan (1080p) from 11.99 to 13.49 euros (1.5 euros more).

According to Netflix, the rate change will be effective immediately for new subscribers and will apply to current subscribers during the next billing cycle. The increase in rates would be a reflection of the current and future investments that the platform will carry out in films, series and original documentaries, to stand up to an increasingly fierce competition formed by Disney +, HBO or Amazon Prime among others.

At the moment there is no information on an increase in the price of the plans in Spain, so these remain with the usual prices that start at 7.99 euros for the base rate, up to 15.99 euros for the premium package. Still, we could see an increase in the coming weeks. The last time the service raised its prices in the country was in 2019.

Digital Trends en Español contacted Netflix for more information on this matter and we will update this note as soon as we get a response.
