Netflix and Disney+ Price Increase: These are the Upcoming Prices for the Major Streaming Services



Netflix and Disney+ Price Increase These are the Upcoming Prices for the Major Streaming Services

Netflix NFLX, +16.05% revealed on Wednesday that it is raising the monthly cost of its premium tier to $22.99 from $19.99 and its basic tier to $11.99 from $9.99. This is the first time the streaming behemoth has offered a plan costing more than $20. Netflix Inc. started its campaign against password sharing earlier this year, and it has since decided to raise prices in the US once more.

The company will continue to charge $6.99 for its ad-supported service and $15.49 for its standard plan.

Executives at Netflix stated that while they “mostly paused price increases as we rolled out paid sharing,” “as we deliver more value to our members, we occasionally ask them to pay a bit more.”

Keeping up with all of the price and ad model changes across all of your streaming services can be challenging. So let’s take a look at the pricing positions of the main streaming services for autumn and how they stack up against one another.

What to know: When Netflix introduced its ad-supported tier last year, it was available for the lowest price in years. However, users of that plan would see four to five minutes of commercials per hour. The two standard plans have slightly lower-quality audio and video and can only stream content to two devices simultaneously; the premium plan supports up to four devices simultaneously on the platform.

Recently, Netflix discontinued offering new members in the US and the UK its basic plan without advertisements. Existing subscribers to a basic plan are free to stay on it until they decide to switch.

In response to Wednesday’s earnings report, Netflix’s stock surged by over 10%, driven by an increase in subscribers.

In 2023, Netflix started to take action against password sharing. To add more users to their current ad-free plans, account holders can pay an extra $7.99 per month.
