Netflix Wants More Of Your Money

Price Rises?

Netflix Wants More Of Your Money

Aussie binge watchers can soon expect Netflix to chew through more of their money, not just their time!

The company's been testing temporary price hikes.

The basic service jumps from $8.99 a month to $9.99, standard rises from $11.99 to $13.99 and the premium service goes for $17.99 a month (up from $14.99).

The price rises are only targeting Aussie subscribers right now.

While not everyone will see a price rise, it's clear there'll be pressure on the company to push fees up when the so-called "Netflix tax" arrives in 6 weeks.

It'll slug international suppliers of services and digital products online with the 10% tax.

A Netflix spokesman said: "Reports that we are testing 'weekend-only' pricing are inaccurate and entirely false.

"As our statement clearly states, this testing varies in length and time and the fact that some members saw this test on a weekend is completely unrelated."
