I have bad news for everyone who love streaming content legally from a service not owned by Amazon. Netflix is increasing the price of its two most expensive plans, meaning you'll have to pay a little bit extra every month.
Netflix made it clear, however, that the basic £6-a-month plan isn't changing. Anyone using the plan, which offers standard definition content and playback on one device at a time, won't see any difference. The HD and 4K plans, however, will cost more: £8 and £10 a month respectively. That's a price hike of 50p and £1 a month.
Brand new members will see the increase from today, and existing members will get an email from the 19th October with a 30-day notice of the change. After the 30 days is up, you'll see the price increase the next time you pay your bill.
As usual with price changes, Netflix had this to say:
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.
