Subscribers who signed up before May 9th, 2014 pay $7.99 per month for access to the streaming catalog including HD, while those who signed up after pay $8.99. If you were already signed up for 4K, you will be grandfathered in until August 12th, 2016.
Netflix has the most 4K content available to consumers, and recently just added the hit show The Blacklist and the kid-friendly Smurfs 2 to the list. What else is great about the plan is it allows 4 devices to play simultaneously, compared to just 2 for the standard plan.
Currently, the company requires you to have a minimum of 25 Mbps download speed, and a 4K TV from a limited list from Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio. The content may not be worth the extra $4 to some, as the only content available now are Breaking Bad, the latest season of original series House of Cards, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2, a nature documentary and the aforementioned Blacklist and The Smurfs 2.
