Streaming service Netflix has increased the prices of standard and premium subscriptions in Germany. If you don't want to see an ad, you'll have to dig into your pockets in the future. The price of the standard subscription model with ads only remains the same and is still 4.99 euros per month. The streaming service provider has not officially announced the price increase, the new prices can only be viewed in the help center.

The prices of those Netflix subscriptions are going up

The price of a regular standard subscription without advertising will increase from 12.99 euros to 13.99 euros per month. Unlimited ad-free movies, TV shows and mobile games. The subscription also allows for two supporting devices, Full HD, downloads on two devices at the same time and the option to add an additional member who lives in another household – but this also costs €4.99.

The most expensive model is the premium subscription for 19.99 euros instead of the previous 17.99 euros. You can watch Ultra HD on four supporting devices at the same time, download on six devices and add two additional members from other households for 4.99 euros.

The Basic subscription, which has not been able to be rebooked for a long time and only applies to existing customers, will see a further price increase: it has increased in price from 7.99 euros to 9.99 euros.

No password sharing or price gouging

Netflix has been cracking down on password sharing between users from different households since last year. At the same time, the streaming service introduced a more affordable, ad-supported subscription. In recent months, price increases have been gradually introduced in other countries. In the US, a premium subscription now costs US$22.99 (about €22).
