I have a Netflix subscription. What will be the impact of the price increase that was announced by Netflix on 16 January 2020?
In January Proximus will inform its customers about the price increase of their subscription by e-mail or letter. Netflix will also inform its subscribers by e-mail and with a notification on the platform interface between 30 January 2020 and 29 February 2020, depending on their billing cycle. The price increase will be effective from the anniversary of your subscription in March (so between 1 March 2020 and 31 March 2020) and will also be visible on your Proximus invoice of March.
How do you pay for Netflix via Proximus?
  • Follow the procedure to pay Netflix via Proximus.
Is the Netflix amount on your Proximus bill incorrect?
  • Your Netflix subscription is not paid per calendar month, but for a one-month period, starting on the day of the month your subscription began.
  • Your Netflix subscription plan (SD, HD or Ultra HD) is incorrect? Consult the Netflix help website.
  • Netflix is included in your pack as a TV bundle, but you don't see the discount for your TV bundle? This discount is not mentioned under Netflix in the Third-party services section, but under your Proximus subscriptions. In the first month that you selected Netflix as a TV bundle, this discount may be lower because your TV bundle started during the course of the month.


What is the impact on your Internet usage?
  • If you watch Netflix on Proximus TV via your own Wi-Fi connection or a Public Wi-Fi hotspot, you will use the data of your fixed Internet.
  • If you watch Netflix on your tablet or mobile phone via mobile data (5G, 4G or 3G), you will use the data of your mobile subscription.
  • When you watch Netflix for one hour, you use about 1 GB/hr. in SD, up to 3 GB/hr. in HD, and up to 7 GB/hr. in Ultra HD.
  • We advise you to regularly consult your usage, for your fixed connection and especially your mobile data.
  • If you exceed your data allowance, watching Netflix may become more difficult and you could be charged extra too. But you can request extra data.
