The cost is set to rise by up to £24 a year for some users.

Netflix, which has 10 million subscribers in the UK, has said that new customers will pay the higher price after their free month's viewing ends.

While the increases will be implemented for existing users ‘over the coming weeks’, so you will have to keep an eye out for your bill.
