Your Netflix bill could soon increase as new ‘Ultra’ service is revealed

Netflix could soon announce some changes to its pricing schedule with the addition of a fourth plan

According to TuttoAndroid, users in Italy have noticed a new "Ultra" plan costing an additional €3.

Joining the Base, Standard, and Premium, multiple users say the Ultra plan costs €16.99 in Italy, or €3 more than the Premium plan now available from the world's top streaming content provider.

A new leak reveals Netflix could be planning to limit its Premium tier to allow just two devices to stream content simultaneously.

Images grabbed from the website show that there are at least two possibilities being considered for the new tier, which would cost €16.99 - $16.99 in the USA if the current pricing scheme is maintained.

Not all Netflix subscribers will see the test, Saran added, and Netflix may never offer these price points permanently. If you fork out £9.99 each month you get premium, which gives you 4K streaming on select programmes and up to four screens at once, should you have multiple users in your home or just really love multitasking. Instead Premium lost out on HDR, which became an Ultra-only feature. Some reports have said that Netflix's existing plans might be altered to change how many devices could be used simultaneously.

Netflix confirmed to CNET it was testing the new tier, stating it is looking at different price points and features to understand how consumers value the service. The streaming company recently raised its prices at the end of 2017. Pricing for the current plans are unchanged in this test, but the way the pricing is structured seems to be a way to disguise the price hike. That may sound exciting, but there's a downside: other plans might be losing screens, making this new pricing structure a sort of price hike in disguise. Netflix gets some flack every time it ups its prices, though most people simply opt to pay an extra couple of pounds each month to retain access. So, you have to earn it first by doing spectacular content that everybody wants to see.
