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

Currently, the SD plan gives you 1 stream the HD standard plan offers 2 and the Premium plan offers 4 streams. The pricing fluctuates but it seems to be anywhere between €16.99 and €19.99 per month. The prices for Standard and Premium plans would not be increased, but losing screens equals a price hike if you share your Netflix login. Promotional material for this new streaming package indicates that it would essentially be the same as the current "Premium" tier. Cord Cutting reports that the price changes depending on the browser that is used.

You probably wonder what sets it apart from the Premium plan on Netflix.

It may sound unusual to be ”testing” a price increase but Netflix often tests new features or changes with its users to evaluate the effects.

Screenshots, like the one below, show an extra lined added to the feature-comparison chart: High dynamic range (HDR). The only discernible difference is the inclusion of HDR support. Netflix customers can change the video quality according to their needs but only up to the quality supported by the subscribed plan. Standard is £8 a month, lets you watch on two screens at a time, and includes HD.

Cnet reports that some Italian customers of Netflix reported that Netflix halved the number of screens that customers can watch streams on simultaneously. Different user groups see various implementations of the new feature or change.

Towards the end of past year, Netflix raised its prices in the United States, with the most expensive option (Ultra HD, 4 screens) increasing from $11.99 to $13.99.

Unfortunately for existing Italian subscribers of the €13.99 Premium tier, they'll be reduced to two simultaneous streams if the new Ultra tier launches.

The last Netflix UK price hike came at the end of 2017, so we'd be surprised to see the company go there again.

What would convince you to pay €19.99 for Netflix?

Netflix might be on the verge of launching its most expensive plan ever
