Netflix may add an even more expensive 'Ultra' streaming tier

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

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.

According to Italian blog site Tutto Android, Netflix is testing a couple variants of a fourth tier.

Those opting for the most expensive "Premium" plan now get access to content in 4K Ultra HD and the ability to view on four screens at once.

At present, the Premium tier, which is priced at £9.99 per month in the United Kingdom, allows for viewing on up to four screens at once, plus gives access to 4K HDR content - in Dolby Vision too if your TV supports it.

A spokesperson for Netflix told CNET that it is not uncommon for the company to test new pricing plans, though no specifics were offered on the purported Ultra tier.

Aside from HDR support that would of course require compatible hardware, there are no other new features in the Ultra plan.

Standard is now €10.99 and Base €7.99.

Netflix may be introducing a new, higher tier of service.

Spurs Rumors: Kawhi Leonard willing to sit out, wait for Los Angeles
In his seventh season with Sacramento, the Kings traded Cousins to the Pelicans at the All-Star break during the 2016-17 season. That's a tricky area to maneuver, so the Silver and Black might be better off finding a trade package before the season starts.

Not all Netflix subscribers will see the test, Saran added, and Netflix may never offer these price points permanently.

In the meantime, Netflix reached out to BGR with a comment on the matter, saying that it's just a test so that Netflix can understand how consumers value Netflix. Nearly 6.4m new worldwide subscribers were added in the final quarter of a year ago, along with more than 1.9m users from the US.

Netflix users could soon have a new subscription plan to choose from. Now, however, if you sign up to Netflix today you'll find there are three tiers and the first one is back to £5.99, just as it was back in 2012. It sure is, but Netflix is reportedly testing a new tier that is pricier than the current Premium tier. The company is now testing it with select European customers. The last time the streaming service increased its prices was last October, when the Standard and Premium plans were increased by $1 and $2, respectively. In other words, the Ultra plan is available for €3 to €6 more than Netflix's premium plan.
