US streaming service Netflix will hike some of its subscription prices next month.

The increase will affect new customers immediately and existing customers from October 19.

Customers on the two-stream HD tier - which allows streaming on two devices at the same time - will be charged an extra €1 per month, bringing their subscription fee up to €10.99 per month.

Customers on the top-tier 4S plan - which allows streaming on four screens in high definition - will be charged an extra €2 per month, bringing their monthly bill up to €13.99.

The basic plan that limits customers to one screen at a time without high-definition will remain at €7.99 per month.

Customers who are unsure which subscription they're on can check the 'plan details' in the account tab of their user profile.

In a statement released on Thursday, Netflix said "from time to time, Netflix plans and prices are adjusted as we add more exclusive TV shows and movies, introduce new product features and improve the overall Netflix experience to help members find something great to watch even faster."

Over the past five years the number of titles available to watch in Ireland has increased by 218 percent.
