This new plan could either impact the number of screens allowed on its "Premium" plan (the current highest tier), which right now includes four screens for $13.99 a month, or only offer HDR to "Ultra" subscribers (not "Premium" ones).
According to Variety, the Ultra plan will set buyers back Dollars $16.99 per month and will allow the consumer to view four Ultra HD streams. How do you feel about the new tier pricing? The proposed "Ultra" membership was captured in a screenshot by an Italian Android blog, Tutto Android.
Whilst confirming the presence of an "Ultra" plan to CNET, Netflix affirms testing is still in progress, with inclusions likely to change until final confirmation. The main difference between Ultra and the previously most expensive plan, Premium, is the availability of HDR for the former.
Cordcutting.com has also spotted pricing and included options for the new "Ultra" plan in Germany.
The new tier will allow four devices to receive UHD or 4K video and audio streaming simultaneously.
Netflix recently raised subscription prices in the U.S. The standard two-stream HD service went up from Dollars $9.99 to $10.99, while the four-stream family plan jumped from USD $11.99 to $13.99. Smita Saran, a Netflix spokeswoman, explained in the email that "In this case, we are testing slightly different price points and features to better understand how consumers value Netflix". Using the same conversion rate works out at £12.15 in the United Kingdom - so pricing would be likely to be either £11.99 or £12.99 for Ultra here.
