Netflix hikes prices in Britain, just in time for Stranger Things series two


Netflix has raised prices for its service in the UK, with users of its standard and premium packages set to fork out more every month.

The move comes just in time for the reappearance of Netflix’s hit Stranger Things horror series which is to return later this month.

Users of Netflix’s ‘basic’ package (which only allows one user, and only in standard definition) will not be affected.

Users of the ‘Standard’ package will see charges rise 50p to £7.99 a month, to watch in HD and on two screens at the same time.

A premium subscription, with up to four simultaneous screens is rising £1 to £9.99 a month.

A spokeswoman 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.’

Users will be notified of the changes on October 19.
