Comment

Netflix is planning to raise prices when the current actors strike ends. The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the company will raise the price of its ad-free streaming tier at the conclusion of the strike. The amount of the increase is as yet undecided but is likely to be similar to competitor pricing. This comes off the back of Netflix focusing on initiatives such as the ad free tier and cracking down on password sharing. However, the company share price has come under pressure of late, perhaps suggesting that the increase is a bad idea given the deceleration in the global economy.

Netflix last increased prices in early 2022 but also removed its basic plan in July to try and entice users to a cheaper ad-based offering.
