Whether you use Netflix in addition to cable television or as a replacement, most people agree that this is becoming all but essential. With a huge library of TV shows, films, and original Netflix programming, Netflix has become a cultural juggernaut of the 21st century.
Like its competitors, Netflix offers a variety of subscription levels that differ in price and features. In the US, Netflix even offers the option of ordering DVDs and Blu-ray Discs by mail.
Here's a guide to what Netflix charges for each of its plans.
How much do Netflix's streaming plans cost?
Netflix offers three streaming plans: Basic, Standard, and Premium, starting at $ 9 per month and ending at $ 18 per month. Here's what you get with every plan.
Basic. The basic streaming plan costs $ 8.99 per month and has the most limited features. You can only use it on one screen at a time (which is fine if you're the only user on the account) and the resolution is limited to standard definition (SD) which is the same as an old pre-HD TV.
Default. The standard streaming plan costs $ 13.99 per month and allows you to watch two on two screens at the same time in high definition (HD).
Bonus. The premium streaming plan costs $ 17.99 per month. You can also watch four screens at the same time (ideal for a large family) and, if available, create video programs in HD or 4K Ultra HD.
How much do Netflix's DVD and Blu-ray plans cost?
In the US, Netflix continues to offer discs via email at dvd.netflix.com. This was, in fact, how Netflix originally delivered its content - on DVD - when it was released in 1998. Streaming video was added in 2007 and DVD rentals fell rapidly. Today it's still an option, albeit an unusual one.
Here are the pricing plans.
Default. The standard DVD plan is $ 7.99 per month. If you prefer Blu-ray, the cost is $ 9.99 per month. Either way, Netflix lets you keep one disc at a time for as long as you want (once you return that disc, Netflix will immediately send you the next disc in your queue). However, there is no limit to the number of discs you can watch over time. The only limitation is how fast you can view and return discs.
Premier. The Premier DVD plan lets you store two discs at a time for $ 11.99 per month or $ 14.99 per month for Blu-rays. Otherwise, the plan works just like the standard plan.
