- With more than 215 million subscribers, Netflix is the most popular streaming service on the market
- No wonder there is an increase in the covid crisis and inflation-ridden world
- So far, this only applies to users in North America, but it is only a matter of time before it arrives in the Czech Republic
In the annual comparisons of streaming services is Netflix always the absolute number one. He beats the second Amazon Prime and the third Spotify. The number of monthly subscribers is approaching 220 million, and in the last year-on-year comparison, Netflix showed an increase of 16 million users.
Netflix is growing and rising in price
However, the king of streaming platforms offers a fairly wide range of content. There you will find series and movies directly produced by Netflix, but also series and movies produced by Netflix, which Netflix leases on time. However, the crisis associated with the coronavirus pandemic is burning in the world and is generally becoming more expensive – in the Czech Republic, inflation is likely to fly up to 10%.
The Netflix Board of Directors has thus decided to increase the price of its subscription. “We are updating the prices of our subscription so that we can continue to deliver quality content to a wide range of viewers. We still have three tariffs on offer, from which users can choose to make it work well in the budget. “ he told the agency Reuters Netflix spokesman.
What will be the price of Netflix in 2022?
So how much will the new Netflix tariffs cost and does it affect users in the Czech Republic? As for the announced rise in price, Netflix has so far only confirmed this in the US and Canada. It is probable that the unpleasant trend will spread to Europe, and thus to the Czech Republic. However, the difference would not have to be so drastic, given the strengthening exchange rate of the Czech currency against the dollar or the euro.
- Netflix Basic – $ 9.99 (original price $ 8.99)
- Netflix Standard – $ 15.49 (original price $ 13.99)
- Netflix Premium 4K – $ 19.99 (original price $ 17.99)
Netflix pushed for an increase of about $ 1.50, ie about 32 crowns. While the basic tariff costs a nice 220 crowns in terms of conversion, the highest 4K subscription for almost $ 20 (430 crowns) is already a fairly significant price increase.
Is a Netflix subscription worth it?
After all, in the Czech Republic, prices are far below the level of the American ones – often even before prices rise. You have a basic tariff with us for CZK 199 per month, a Standard containing Full HD for CZK 259 per month and the highest Premium with a 4K image for CZK 319 per month.
On the other hand, competitive services available on the Czech market do not yet plan for prices and are already cheaper than Netflix. For example, such an HBO GO costs 159 crowns a month, but it cannot do 4K or HDR.
Another strong player is Amazon Prime, which has quite an interesting pricing policy. The first month is free, the next six months for 79 crowns a month, then the standard 159 crowns a month. If you pay a special tariff for CZK 299 per month, you also have access to music and free postage when ordering from the Amazon e-shop.
What do you say about the rise in Netflix prices in the USA and Canada? In your opinion, will the new pricing policy also reach the Czech Republic?
