Netflix is testing some new plans. Here's what they do

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. This, however, is already offered on the current, and cheaper, premium plan.

The company now has three subscription plans: $7.99 Basic, $10.99 Standard, and $13.99 Premium. Maybe not by itself, but based on some of the promotional materials in Italty, Netflix may reduce the number of screens on which you can stream under the Premium plan from four to two.

So Netflix wants to see how much users value HDR vs. four-stream access.

So far, these plans are only being tested in Europe, but, according to how well these changes are received, could become more widespread among Netflix customers.

The company said in a statement given to USA TODAY: "We continuously test new things at Netflix and these tests typically vary in length of time".

Speculation that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen might flip
Cohen said he does not believe Mueller will find evidence that he'd had any illegal or improper dealings with Russian Federation . The content of the items turned over to the government Monday was not identified as part of Jones' two-page report to U.S.

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.

"This is now only a test, and Netflix might decide not to bother with it as a consumer product". Netflix has confirmed the Ultra tests, but noted that only select customers will see the additional option.

Wall Street analysts have said that Netflix has enough pull for testing out these higher prices. There have been speculations that chordcutting.com is testing two prices in Germany which are 16.99 United States dollars and 19.99 USD; so, Netflix also will be tinkering with its prices for new plans.

During a few months of 2017, Netflix posted its largest three-month growth spurt - 8.3 million new subscribers - despite raising the cost of its most popular plan (the Standard plan with two screens watching simultaneously) by $1 in October 2017.

Now on to the "Ultra" high-end streaming plan.
