These are the Netflix subscriptions

Are you planning to take out a Netflix subscription? Then there are three options to choose from. Which streaming subscription you need depends mainly on your use and whether you only need the account for yourself, or if you want to check the latest films and series with several people. Below we go through the Netflix subscriptions with you.

Netflix Basic

The cheapest subscription is called Basic and as the name suggests, you only get the basic functions of Netflix. You can watch all movies and series, but in SD quality. In other words: streaming is in 480p resolution and that does not stop.

The low resolution is still okay on smaller devices (such as your smartphone), but on televisions you will see that the image is not sharp. Also important to know: with Netflix Basic you can only watch on one device at a time.

  • Cost: 7.99 euros per month
  • Image quality: maximum sd (480p)
  • look at a machine
  • Working on your phone, tablet, computer and television

Netflix Standard

The middle subscription is Netflix Standard. You then watch in full-HD quality (1080p), which looks nice and sharp on almost all screens. However, on 4k TVs it can be even sharper – more about that later. With Standard you can also watch on two devices at the same time; useful if you want to share your account with a family member or partner.

  • Cost: 11.99 euros per month
  • Image quality: maximum full hd (1080p)
  • look at two devices at once
  • Working on your phone, tablet, computer and television

Netflix Premium

Want the best of the best on Netflix? Then you must be with the Premium subscription. You then watch movies and series in 4K quality (provided titles support this) and then have HDR support. With Premium you are therefore assured of the best image quality.

The HDR support makes images look more vivid and realistic. You can also stream on four devices at the same time. You pay a lot for all this, because Netflix Premium costs 15.99 euros per month. This makes it one of the more expensive streaming subscriptions in Netflix.

  • Cost: 15.99 euros per month
