After Netflix increased prices in the USA in 2020, the price increase will now also affect German users. This comes as a bit of a surprise because the prices were not increased until summer 2019. At that time, the standard package with HD playback on up to two devices rose from 10.99 euros to 11.99 (9%) and the premium version with UHD playback on up to four devices from 13.99 to 15.99 Euros (14%).
Netflix is now announcing a comparable price increase for 2021: the standard package with SD playback will remain at 7.99 euros, as in 2019.
The HD package increases from 11.99 euros to 12.99 euros (8%) and the UHD package increases from 15.99 euros to 17.99 euros (13%). Meanwhile, the price increases will not change anything in the offer – everything will remain as usual. For new customers, the prices apply immediately; Existing customers will be informed at least 30 days in advance and can then cancel if they wish.
Suitable for the topic | Price increases on Spotify and Netflix threatenSome people may be a little annoyed because Netflix does not pass on the current exchange rate development between the euro and the US dollar. One euro is currently buying more in US currency than it was a few months ago. Conversely, imports from the euro zone are becoming more expensive for the USA – 1 euro buys 1.22 US dollars today; a year ago it was $ 1.11. After all, the gap between the US and the euro zone in the smaller Netflix contributions is not yet extremely wide, as is the case, for example, with games. If you allow yourself the fun, the prices in the USA and Germany are now compared as follows:
- SD subscription for 7.99 US dollars: 6.47 euros net corresponds to 7.84 US dollars daily rate
- HD subscription for USD 12.99: EUR 10.52 net corresponds to USD 12.74 daily rate
- UHD subscription for 15.99 US dollars: 14.57 euros net corresponds to 17.65 US dollars daily rate
PCGH had already expected the price increase last year when the US prices were raised by Netflix and Spotify. At that time, however, it was already questionable whether the second measure would come so soon after an increase – now we know more.
