Netflix Is Removing All Online Reviews, and Testing Out Pricier 'Ultra' Plan

So it effectively means the Premium plan is $3 cheaper per month but you don't have HDR, so the question becomes: why didn't Netflix just make a Premium HDR subscription for $3 more per month.

Users in European countries like Germany and Italy have already reported seeing this addition to the list of subscription plans, according to Cordcutting.com, with Ultra being priced at €16.99 (roughly £15 GBP or $19.90 USD). "In the second offer, both Premium and Ultra customers would have access to four concurrent Ultra HD streams but only Ultra customers would have access to high dynamic range (HDR) content, which provides more vibrant color reproduction and higher contrast". Currently, the highest package is worth $13.99 that is known by the name of Premium. But if you want the best out of your Netflix subscription, you must be willing to pay a bit more in the near future. However, if Netflix decides to implement this Ultra on a Global scale, there would be possibilities for other streaming platforms such as the Amazon Prime and other local media firms to woo the customers.

Netflix is now working on a new "Ultra" plan for subscription, which will allow users to watch the Netflix videos, series and movies in 4K HD and HDR. Standard allows for viewing on two screens, and Premium allows for four screen streaming.

"This feature is only offered on the website and has seen declining usage over time", said Netflix spokesperson Smita Saran.

Wall Street analysts have said Netflix has some wiggle room for higher prices.

The company now has three subscription plans: $7.99 Basic, $10.99 Standard, and $13.99 Premium. According to CNET, the hugely popular streaming service, home to terrific genre shows like Stranger Things and Black Mirror, is testing out a new "Ultra" tier in parts of Europe.
