    I agree - Netflix prices are going up £2 a month - they are not being 'Hiked'

    However it is all getting rather expensive. To watch in decent screen quality on multiple devices @£192 a year is a lot more than the maintstream competition.

    We use the basic plan. Screen quality is perfectly fine and I only ever use one device to download programmes if we are ever going away anywhere. £6.99 a month is very reasonable. Even the £10.99 plan is cheaper than the TV licence, so still good value IMO.

    £6.99 a month is just over £83 per year, perfectly acceptable compared to the TV Licence at £159. 
    Cancel any time you want and if you use a VPN you can watch content from any country not just the UK.
    Someone please tell me what money is

    "We use the basic plan. Screen quality is perfectly fine and I only ever use one device to download"

    Thanks for that. I have changed from the 3x devices and h.d. to the £6.99/month one device and wondered whether there will be a big deterioration in picture quality?
    You have to laugh at all this headline grabbing "hike"!
    What's wrong with "rise"? Same number of letters but less catchy no doubt!
