Early users of Netflix are set for a €2 a month price hike at the end of the month.

Those who signed up at €7.99 for a HD plan will have to pay €9.99 if they wish to continue with the plan.

They’ll have the option of continuing at €7.99 a month on a standard definition plan.

Netflix previously flagged the price rises in May 2014, but did not put them into effect immediately as a “thank you to members”. It is calling the process “ungrandfathering”.

“Later this month, members in the UK and Ireland will begin to be ungrandfathered. Beginning May, the price update is rolling out elsewhere based on member billing periods. Impacted members will be clearly notified by email and within the service, so that they have time to decide which plan/price point works best for them,” a Netflix spokeswoman told Independent.ie
