Three increases in 3 years at Deezer

Over the past three years, Deezer has increased its prices, particularly on the Family plan. Displayed at €14.99 in 2020, its price then increased in February 2022 to reach €17.99. Today, you will have to pay almost twenty euros to continue to benefit from this offer (6 independent accounts, High Fidelity sound included). De facto, note that Deezer’s Premium offer becomes the most expensive on the marketbehind Apple Music and Spotify (€10.99/month for both competitors).

According to Deezerthe new prices have come into force since September 21, 2023 for any new Premium and Family subscription taken out in France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Spain and Italy. For users who already subscribe, the price change will take effect at the earliest during the first billing period, i.e. after October 24, 2023.

As a reminder, this new increase (the second in less than 2 years) is part of a recent phenomenon of generalized inflation of streaming services : “streamflation”. In recent months, Disney+, Spotify, Paramount, Netflix, Amazon Music and now Deezer have all announced an increase in their prices, in France and other countries around the world. After a golden period during the pandemic, the bellows are falling again today. To avoid losing users, these services do not hesitate to set up cheaper packages containing advertisements in particular.
