The Basic plan remains unchanged at $8.99. However with 480p resolution and access for a single screen it remains the worst price/quality deal that you can get!
Netflix Price Increase Timeline
Netflix’s price increase comes less than 2 years, in fact around 22 months, after its January 2019 price bump that adjusted the prices of all three plans with a similar increment. Standard package went up from
$10.99 to $11.99, while the Premium monthly subscription hiked from $13.99 to $15.99.
Netflix Price Increase 2020
The new prices will take effect immediately for new customers, according to CNBC!
Existing clients will see their Netflix bill go higher in the upcoming two months. They will receive a 30-day warning before the price bump takes effect, allowing enough time to quit the subscription if they don’t agree with the new prices.
The Netflix 2020 price bump is applied worldwide and will be adjusted to your local currency. This means that Netflix streaming services are now more expensive not only in the USA, but in Canada, Europe, Australia and all other supported regions.
