Popular streaming service Netflix has announced it’s hiking up the prices of it’s plans in Australia.
From today, the basic plan will increase from $9.99 to $10.99 a month, while the standard plan will go from $13.99 to $15.99.
However, Aussie viewers already paying for the premium plan won’t have to worry, with that plan staying at the same price of $19.99 a month.

A spokesperson from Netflix said the price hike would enable the company to “invest in more shows and films”, giving Australians more variety.
“We know Australians have never had more choices when it comes to entertainment, and we’re more committed than ever to delivering an experience that exceeds their expectations,” Netflix said.
“Members tell us how much they value the breadth and variety of the catalogue, and we’re updating our prices so that we can continue to invest in more shows and films.
“As always, there will be different plans so that people can pick a price that works for their budget.”
The price increase will be effective immediately for new users, while existing members will notice the difference on their next bill.
