Sorry to be a bearer of bad news but Netflix have announced their revised subscription pricing in accordance with the 6% digital tax that’s to be implemented next month. Netflix’s updated pricing will take effect on January 9.
The Basic plan will cost RM35 (from RM33) – this lets you watch on only one screen at any given time, with no HD streaming. The Standard plan will cost RM45 (from RM42) – this gets you HD streaming and up to two screens you can watch on at one time. Lastly, the Premium plan will set you back RM55 (from RM51) – this adds ultra HD streaming to its features and allows up to 4 devices playing at one time. No changes will be made to the Mobile plan (RM17) that lets you only stream on your mobile devices.
So, an overall increase of RM1.50-RM1.75 for each member if you’re going you subscribe to the Standard or Premium plans. Basic sees you paying RM2 more by yourself.
