Netflix tests a new "ultra" tier across Europe, but there’s a catch

Some people who were now subscribed to the Basic, Standard and Premium plans were unaffected.

Tutto Android has obtained leaked Netflix promotional material that suggests the Netflix Premium tier is changing.

Those opting for the most expensive "Premium" plan now get access to content in 4K Ultra HD and the ability to view on four screens at once. The first is said to offer four ultra-high-definition (UHD) video and audio streams, meaning users can watch across four devices at one time.

Netflix may be introducing its most expensive service tier yet with Ultra.

This new tier will cost 16.99 Euros (~$20), an increase of 3 Euros (~$6) compared to the Premium tier, without any new additions. Basic gives you access to SD resolution, Standard gives you access to HD resolution, and Premium covers 4K resolution and HDR.

The spill reached the Rock River, which joins the Big Sioux River before merging into the Missouri River at Sioux City. Crews are working to contain and clean up crude that spilled when an oil train derailed in northwestern Iowa.

Supposed screenshots showing the new plan made it online and it now appears as though they're genuine. That seems like a lot of money for no extra screens or other perks, but for the moment this is just a test to see what people make of the new model.

Similarly, the Standard subscription might be downgraded to just one display.

If the Ultra tier is rolled out after the trials, Premium subscribers will no longer get HDR support.

Meanwhile, in a statement to CNET, Netflix has said that it is "continuously" testing new things and that a test does not necessarily indicate plans for a full rollout. The company is now testing it with select European customers. A company spokesperson was quoted as saying, "In this case, we are testing slightly different price points and features to better understand how consumers value Netflix". 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.

Also, from the documentation posted by TuttoAndroid (via PhoneArena), it isn't clear whether Premium subscribers will lose their current access to HDR content too.
