Subscription rates for soon to be available video-on-demand provider Netflix will cost €7.99 a month in Austria and Germany, according to a leaked report on tech blog engadget.de.

The US company has not confirmed this, and is unlikely to do so until official launch events in Berlin and Vienna on September 16th and 17th.

Meanwhile, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings told German news magazine Der Spiegel that he wants to develop original series in Germany in future.

Representatives of the company have been talking to rights dealers for months, aiming to compile an attractive package for the German speaking market.

The target would be a line-up reflecting “the specific taste and culture” of each country Netflix expands into, said chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

In addition to the standard subscription package of €7.99, which enables you to watch films and TV series, there will also be a multiple-users service for €8.99 a month which allows two users to view programmes at the same time on a single monthly account, or a package of €11.99 for multiple-users watching on four devices in ultra-HD.
