For the last time in the United States, at $ 12 a month, Netflix Premium now costs $ 20 a month. The other two packages, Basic and Standard, cost $ 10 and $ 15.5 per month, respectively.

Moreover, Netflix is testing a fee for account sharing, an activity with which the company agreed as long as it contributed to the popularization of the service, but which considers that now is the time to bring money.

Even without price increases, Netflix Premium costs 12 euros per month in Romania, which is twice as much as HBO Max and Prime Video combined.
