Netflix mulling over 'Ultra' subscription for $17 per month

Netflix mulling over 'Ultra' subscription for $17 per month

The Ultra Plan, which The Verge figures will cost around $16.99, also lets you stream on four screens, but in HDR video and 4k resolution. The new tier will offer the same quality and features as Netflix's Premium tier which, at $13.99, was the highest tier available.

With the most recent price increase last fall, the two-screen Standard subscription option went up to $10.99/month, while the four-screen Premium option went up to $13.99/month.

One offer allows viewers to stream four movies concurrently in Ultra HD. People will no longer be able to write their feedback on a show, and in mid-August, people will no longer be able to read existing user reviews on Netflix either, CNET reported. Maybe, this is why they have restricted the test of the new Ultra subscription to a few selected group countries in Europe.

It's called the "Netflix Ultra".

Trump Officially Welcomes Ex-Fox News Exec To WH Communication Department
President Trump has hired Fox News executive Bill Shine to head up the his communications team, the White House said Thursday. Named in a number of lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct, he was blamed for not doing more to prevent it.

Netflix is testing some new plans. Depending on how the trial performs with this initial group, Netflix may or may not decide to roll out this plan to a wider group of customers. So it effectively means the Premium plan is $3 cheaper per month but you don't have HDR, so the question becomes: why didn't Netflix just make a Premium HDR subscription for $3 more per month.

There are now three subscription plans to choose from: $7.99 Basic (Standard Definition - 1 screen at a time), $10.99 Standard (HD available - 2 screens) and $13.99 Premium (HD and Ultra HD on 4 screens).

Netflix is also planning and testing various versions of plans that could get the HDR videos on the Ultra pack, so that it could stand different and higher above the current premium plan.

Netflix told CNET the new Ultra plan is completely real. "Not everyone will see this test and we may not ever offer the specific price points or features included in this test".
