As of today, Netflix has increased the price of its UK standard and premium subscriptions for new customers.

A standard subscription has risen from £7.50 to £8 a month, while a premium subscription has risen from £9 to £10 a month. The basic service remains the same at £6 a month.

Existing customers will be notified of the increase at least 30 days in advance, based on their billing cycle.

The price hike comes three weeks before the second series of "Stranger Things" is released. Similar price hikes have hit US customers.

"From time to time, Netflix plans and pricing 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," Netflix said in a statement.
