Netflix Increases US, Canada Subscription Fees…Nigerian Subscribers To Suffer Same Fate



With the increase in inflation rates and the unstable foreign exchange, Netflix is likely to hike its subscription fee in Nigeria.

This is following the latest increase in its subscription fee in the United States and Canada, effective immediately for new subscribers.

Usually, when the inflation rate rises, prices of goods and services also increases, and consequently, banks raise their interest rates as well to cope and maintain their profit margin.

In the U.S., subscribers to Netflix’s basic plan, which allows for one stream on one screen at a time and does not have HD streaming, will now be charged $9.99 a month, up from $8.99.

The standard plans, which allow for users to stream on two screens at the same time now costs $15.49 per month, an increase from $13.99, while premium plans have also increased to $19.99 a month.

Investors King gathered that this is the third time Netflix will raise its prices in three years and the first since October 2020 for streamers residing in the U.S. and Canada.

Presently in Nigeria, Netflix’s subscription rate ranges from about  3,300 to about 5,800 per month.

Investors King recalls that Netflix, in 2020, officially launched its presence in Nigeria and since its launch, the streaming company has dominated Nigeria’s relatively new video-on-demand market with some hit movies and web series like King of Boys, Òlòtūré, Citation, Lionheart, Namaste Wahala, among others.

Today, Netflix has over 151 million paying subscribers in more than 190 countries.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government of Nigeria is making plans to force international social network services and digital platforms to register and open offices in Nigeria.

This means that media services, social media platforms and digital streaming platforms like Netflix and the others must register and pay tax in Nigeria and register with the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).

This move, according to the government, is to ensure that all these platforms register with the NBC, apply for a broadcasting license and pay tax.
