Netflix’s ‘Ultra’ plan will kill the cable

Netflix has now started testing its pricier ‘Ultra’ plan, with a possible $17-price tag. While it might raise many an eyebrow, this might be the final blow to cable companies, as it aims at a higher grade of cable cutters.

The new plan, which will be above it’s ‘Premium’ subscription, offers the same four simultaneous 4K streams at once. But it might get a new HDR video. According to CordCutting.com, the streaming giant is testing new plans in Germany, with both €16.99 and €19.99 price tags.

This also means that in the near future, if you want the most out of your Netflix, you might have to pay up more.
