Behind the Price Increase

Netflix has raised its prices as part of its strategy to expand its content library, invest more in original TV shows, movies, and gaming, and enhance its overall business value.


The company’s previous price hike occurred in January 2022 when it discontinued offering its $9.99 Basic (Rs. 832) ad-supported plan to new and returning users.

No Price Hike in India


Netflix has opted not to increase its prices in India, recognizing the importance of maintaining affordable plans to bolster its user base in the country.

Furthermore, Netflix has introduced measures to curtail password sharing globally, resulting in an uptick in its customer base.
