Here’s How Much Netflix Costs in Every Country in the World

If you thought Netflix was getting expensive in the U.S., well, you’re right. But we’re actually not paying the highest rates in the world — though we are up there.

Visual Capitalist recently mapped out (literally) the cost of a Netflix subscription in every country in which the streamer is available — all 190 of them. (Netflix is available in 244 countries and territories.)

More from IndieWire

You can find all of this info for yourself on Netflix’s own website, but it looks much prettier below.

At $15.49/month, the price for the “Standard” ad-free plan, the U.S. has the fifth-priciest Netflix subscription rate in the world, behind (in order) Switzerland, Denmark, Greenland, and Ireland. (Tied with the U.S. are American Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Most of those are U.S. territories; Palau, the Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia are independent nations, but pay the same monthly rate.)

There’s nothing neutral about the Swiss rate of $21.48/month — it is more than five bucks higher than anyone else on Earth.

The rates in this study have all been converted to USD using exchange rates from December 10, 2023. The date also explains why the first graphic shorts Netflix by about 20 million global subscribers — hey, it takes a long time to perform research this in-depth.

On the opposite side of the spectrum — and to varying extents, the world — is Pakistan, where a Netflix subscription costs just $2.82/month. The next-four-cheapest countries are Turkey, Argentina, Egypt, and Nigeria.

The below world map shows the cheapest countries for a Netflix membership in green and the most expensive ones in maroon. (The U.S. is a solid orange.) Netflix is unavailable in the white countries: Russia, Crimea, Syria, China, and North Korea. The service used to be available in Russia — until it invaded Ukraine.

It is no coincidence that the richest nations pay the most for Netflix and the poorest nations the least. When one cannot afford to get all of their basic needs met, or at the very least have little-to-no disposable income, Netflix is just not a priority.

Other factors that explain significant differences in prices between countries include competition (for example, Netflix is not the top streaming service in Africa — that’s Showmax), the strength of the local currency, and the availability of broadband. There are plenty of other economic factors at play here, like the cost to produce or acquire programming.

See Netflix’s monthly cost (converted to USD) for a “Standard” plan in each available country below, in alphabetical order. Some of the nations have a cheaper ad-supported option, others do not (yet).
