Netflix raised its prices for subscribers in the United Kingdom and Ireland, the streaming platform said on Thursday, in a bid to invest more in production of new shows and films.

In Ireland, the basic plan would increase by EUR 1, while the standard and premium tiers would now cost EUR 14.99 (roughly Rs. 1,260) and EUR 20.99 (roughly Rs. 1,700), respectively.

"Our updated prices reflect the investment we have made in our service and catalog, and will allow us to continue making the series, documentaries and films our members love as well as investing in talent and the creative industry," said a spokesperson from Netflix.

The company last updated its prices for the UK in December 2020 and for Ireland in March 2021.

The price change will start from March 10 for all new members, while existing members will be notified by Netflix 30 days before it comes into effect for their respective billing cycles. The news was first reported by The Guardian on Thursday.
