Netflix Has a New Plan for Europe - Is the US Next?

Netflix Has a New Plan for Europe - Is the US Next?

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.

When subscribing to the €16.99 tier, those Ultra subscribers would also be able to watch Netflix on four screens simultaneously. The streaming service is now testing an Ultra pricing tier.

Users on the premium tier would see their streams halve from four to two and lose access to HDR, but keep 4K viewing. Depending on the browser used, the Ultra plan was priced at both €16.99 and €19.99 when the website was accessed in the country. Now this plan has not officially launched yet, but Netflix is currently testing it as an option for some subscribers.

Iran will use various methods to prevent a possible reduction in its oil exports after re-imposition of the USA sanctions. He also said he and senior Treasury Department would visit Gulf states "in the coming days".

"We continuously test new things at Netflix and these tests typically vary in length of time", Netflix spokeswoman Smita Saran told CNET in an email. "In this case, we are testing slightly different price points and features to better understand how customers value Netflix".

The new test won't be available for all Netflix subscribers in Europe and the streaming service might not even offer the new price points to more users. Nearly 6.4m new global subscribers were added in the final quarter of previous year, along with more than 1.9m users from the US.

So what do you get with the new high-end plan? 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. The company is now testing it with select European customers. For less than $14 a month, you can enjoy all the movies and TV shows you like, in Ultra HD, on up to four devices simultaneously. According to the promotional material shared for this new package, the new tier would essentially provide the same benefits as the current Premium tier. In October, the company bumped its Standard and Premium plans by $1 and $2, respectively.
