Netflix may soon charge you even more for 4K and HDR

Netflix may soon charge you even more for 4K and HDR

The three subscription plans Netflix now offers, basic, standard and premium, cost $7.99, $10.99 and $13.99, respectively. The new plan, called "Ultra", has begun showing up on the European Netflix.

The online TV and movie service now offers three pricing tiers which range from £5.99 to £9.99. They will still get Ultra HD resolutions where applicable, but supporting shows and films won't display the better contrast and colour range on offer with HDR.

Keep in mind that Netflix has yet to officially change its current plans yet, so you might want to wait to see what the streamer does before you start looking at other apps as a replacement. The streaming service is now testing an Ultra pricing tier.

The operator's prices have been slowly creeping up following a series of increases over the last two years.

She said: "We continuously test new things at Netflix and these tests typically vary in length of time".

The Ultra plan option may not be implemented broadly and, at the testing stage, not all users will automatically see it as an option.

Trump, in a concise statement, said the press should be free of the fear of being violently attacked while doing their jobs . The newspaper office is in a building with other businesses, and officials said about 170 people were escorted out safely .

This Ultra level is priced at €16.99 ($19.78) per month, which is €3 more than the Premium tier that already supports Ultra HD content and four screens.

This is because the changes may mean those paying for the £9.99 Premium tier would no longer be able to view on four screens at once with only Ultra subscribers getting that privilege.

CNET got confirmation from Netflix that the company is "testing slightly different price points and features to better understand how consumers value Netflix".

You might have to pay a lot more for your Netflix subscription if your account is regularly used on more than two devices. The move also affects the standard plan, where multiple simultaneous streams are eliminated completely-streaming will be possible on only one device at a time.

Although the new Netflix Ultra plan is just being tested, it could also become an actual new tier if it's applied to everyone.
