In the summer of 2022, we were eligible to receive several consecutive price increases from the main streaming services on the market. For example, this was the case with Amazon Prime Video, whose price went from €49.99 a year to €69.99 a year. Canal+ has also increased the prices of the Canal+ and Disney+ formula, especially due to the 20% VAT imposed by Bercy.
In August 2022, the French service Molotov also announced a price increase. Indeed, the Premium Molotov Plus offer has increased from € 3.99 to € 5.99 per month. However, the platform stated the following in its press release: This new fee schedule is valid for late arrivals only. In other words, old subscribers will be able to keep their offers from € 3.99 per month.
Old subscribers will also have to pay
Guess what, that’s not the case anymore. In the effect, Molotov begins to warn customers concerned about the rise in the price of their formula. “The prices of our subscriptions have changed since August 4, 2022. You are currently enjoying a tariff that is no longer marketed by Molotov (Molotov Plus, € 3.99 per month)”, writes the service.
As you can see, Molotov therefore justifies this increase by the fact that: The Molotov Plus formula is no longer offered in its catalog. For good reason, it has been replaced by the Molotov Extra offer, which has more or less the same benefits as Molotov Plus. but at a higher price and € 5.99 per month fixed (no commitment).
With this formula, subscribers can access more than 80 channels, record their programs in the cloud and watch TV simultaneously on HD and 4 screens from anywhere in Europe. As the platform states in this email, The subscription price will automatically increase to €5.99 per month from March 23, 2023.. He adds that the automatic payment date will not change, the subscription is not binding and can be canceled at any time from the customer area.
