How Much Does Netflix Streaming Cost?

Netflix offers multiple pricing structures for its video streaming services. We will be examining the basic services first. Netflix provides its subscribers with three primary monthly pricing plans, as follows:

Basic, $8.99 per month. Netflix’s basic plan doesn’t provide high definition (HD) viewing and subscribers can only watch  its programs on one screen at a time.

Standard, $12.99 per month. The Netflix standard offers high definition (HD) videos and allows subscribers to view simultaneously from two different screen at a time.

Premium, $15.99 per month. The top tier offering includes the ability of allowing subscribers to watch four screens at the same time. It’s also the only item on the Netflix that offers a 4K viewing option.

While still in “test” model, Netflix is offering a new high-end streaming service option in select cities. The program, called “Ultra”, reportedly offers four Ultra HD viewing streams or content viewable in HDR format. The Ultra service, which goes for $16.99 per month offers two options for customers:

Version No 1 provides four Ultra HD streams, with the current $15.99 per-month viewing option sliding from four UHD streams to two UHD streams.

Version No 2 provides access to four Ultra HD streams, but with a twist: only Netflix Ultra customers can gain access to the company’s high dynamic range content services, which is a superior viewing experience, according to the company.

While the two model options are being tests in a handful of viewing areas, there is no guarantee the company will or will not go forward with the pricing plans anytime soon.
