Netflix has been working on a few ideas for new subscription plans which would allow for more than one device, a long-held debt with its subscribers. Finally, users will be able to share and watch their favorite shows with family and housemates simultaneously in a move that is sure to benefit everyone.
Netflix is currently trying some experimental plans on select users, which allows them to watch the service’s offerings in up to 4 screens for $12 a month, and another that allows 2 screens for $8. As CEO Reed Hastings and CFO David Wells put it in a letter to their shareholders, “Last April we introduced a 4-concurrent stream $11.99 option to begin our evaluation of plan tiering. Since late last year, we have also been testing 1-stream and 3-stream variants, as well as SD/HD variations, at various price points. Eventually, we hope to be able to offer new members a selection of three simple options to fit everyone’s taste.” (Source)
The service’s representatives also clarified that there would be “generous grandfathering of their existing plans and prices,” which we guess means a discount in the current standard price.
