Stand: 12:13 p.m. | Reading time: 2 minutes
Since Thursday, new customers in Germany have been paying more for certain subscription models from the streaming provider. The new tariffs will be introduced for existing customers over the next few months. Only with one tariff nothing changes in the price.
Netflix is becoming more expensive for some of its customers in Germany. However, the price increase does not affect the base rate, which will continue to be 7.99 euros per month. The streaming provider announced this to the dpa news agency in Berlin.
The standard tariff (including HD quality and reception on two devices at the same time) will cost 12.99 euros per month, which is one euro more. The premium tariff (Ultra HD, HDR and Dolby Atmos quality and reception on four devices) will cost 17.99 euros instead of 15.99 euros in the future. The basic tariff, on the other hand, reproduces the image in SD quality and does not allow simultaneous streaming on more than one device.
The tariffs came into effect on Thursday. New members will see the new price immediately. For existing customers affected, it will be introduced over the next few months; according to Netflix, they will be notified at least 30 days before a change comes into effect.
“We change prices from time to time to keep investing in great entertainment and to constantly expand the portfolio of films and series,” said a Netflix spokesman.
It is important for the streaming provider to offer “continuously increasing value” for users in Germany. “In the last two years, in addition to international productions, we have also massively increased our investments in German-speaking countries and brought more German content to the screen – we will continue to expand this in 2021.”
The spokesman added: “The price of our base tariff will remain and will not increase.”
