Netflix Raises HD & 4k Streaming Fees

netflix-4k-hdr-titles-angle-1280pxNext week, Netflix will email customers informing them of a price increase on the monthly HD and 4k plans. It’s been almost exactly two years since the company upped their streaming rates for the 2-screen/HD plan, when it increased from $8.99 to $9.99. Starting on the next billing cycle, and for new customers, that plan will cost $10.99 per month.

The company’s “premium” service plan, which includes 4k streaming and up to 4 screens at once, will increase $2 from $11.99 to $13.99 per month.

It was only a matter of time before this deal became more practical for the company. I mean bandwidth is expensive, isn’t it? Even still, $13.99 for a family plan that could presumably all be streaming in 2160p simultaneously is a great deal. And, 4k streaming includes titles with HDR, offering a wider range of color depth and contrast.

Netflix’s basic streaming plan, however, is staying the same at $7.99 per month. The service only allows streaming to one device at a time and only Standard Definition (480p) video resolution.

All three plans also allow downloading of shows and movies to tablets and phones (no PCs yet), and depending on the plan you can download content to one device, two devices, or four devices. The feature is a great option for taking programs on the road (or in the air), where internet service is either intermittent not available. (Read: How to Download Movies and Shows from Netflix.)
