MT Week - How to watch TV and films for free
“They” say that millennials can’t afford to buy homes because of Netflix and avocados.
Whether or not you believe that to be true, one thing is for sure: Netflix is getting more and more expensive.
In the past, the streaming giant has only increased prices on its more premium bundles. But in March this year, it announced that it would be putting up the prices on its most basic bundle too - from £5.99 to £6.99.
The price increase is already in effect for new customers, while existing customers will get a 30-day notification ahead of the price increase (date TBC).
Of course, there are plenty of alternatives to Netflix, from Amazon Prime to Britbox, that’ll keep their prices low.
And if you fancy saving £70 or so a year - perhaps towards that first home - there are plenty of free options too.
I asked Or Goren, who writes about all things money saving in the context of TV and films for Cord Busters, for his insights.
