Netflix last raised prices here in March 2021. The company says that its basic plan has not seen a price increase in eight years.

The move comes after Disney Plus announced that it would soon introduce ads to a new basic streaming plan.

A spokesperson for Netflix said that the company has significant productions underway in Ireland.

”Our updated prices reflect the investment we have made in our service and catalogue, 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 the Netflix spokesperson.

“We offer a range of plans so members can choose a price that works best for them.”
