Netflix increases prices in new test | The Independent

Initial reports from The Australian and News.au claimed that the prices rise only applied to users looking to sign up to the service on weekends, but Netflix has denied this in a statement sent to the The Independent.

“We continuously test new things at Netflix and these tests typically vary in length of time,” said the company.

“In this case, we are testing slightly different price points to better understand how consumers value Netflix. Not everyone will see this test and we may not ever offer it generally.

“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. This test is limited to Australia only.“

According to News.au, prices for some customers in Australia rose from $8.99 to $9.99 per month for the Basic plan, $11.99 to $13.99 for the Standard plan and $14.99 to $17.99 for the Premium plan.
