What is the difference between Netflix basic and standard?
There is a definite difference in the three Netflix packages: Basic: SD (480p) only. Can be watched simultaneously on only one device (TV, Laptop, Tablet, Mobile - each is one device). Standard: SD and Full HD (1080p).
The Basic plan offers 720p resolution, which is lower than its ad plan at 1080p. Netflix's gradual expansion of the new pricing model mirrors the technique it used with its password-sharing crackdown.

Netflix has removed its basic, ad-free plan from its list of options for new subscribers in the U.S. and U.K. The move comes shortly after Netflix's introduction of its cheaper, ad-supported option.
Here's a breakdown of how many devices can watch content on your Netflix account at once: Both the Standard with ads and Standard plans allow you to watch Netflix on two screens at the same time. With the Premium plan, you're able to watch Netflix on four screens at once.
A Netflix account is meant to be shared by people who live together in one household. People who are not in your household will need to use their own account to watch Netflix.
As far as the catalog goes, Basic subscribers have access to the same material as those on a Premium monthly plan. Differences come in the form of resolution — the Standard with ads and the Standard plan now stream at Full HD (1080p). The Basic plan (for those who keep it) streams in just HD (720p) resolution.
Video and audio quality
Netflix's Standard plans stream in 1080p HD. The Premium plan allows 4K Ultra HD streaming, which applies to Netflix originals and some acquired titles. More advanced HDR (high dynamic range) streaming is available on a limited basis.
Basic and Premium plan Netflix subscribers will now pay a little more each month for the streaming service. To help save on this cost, get a credit card that rewards streaming purchases, switch your phone plan to T-Mobile or take a pause on your subscription.
Netflix costs $6.99 to $22.99 per month, depending on your subscription plan. It offers three plans: Standard With Ads, Standard and Premium. A former popular choice was the Basic plan at $9.99, but Netflix recently eliminated this option for new or rejoining members.
Is Netflix getting rid of the $9.99 plan?
Netflix has officially removed its $9.99 "Basic" subscription plan for users in the U.S. and UK. The U.S. and UK changes were first noticed on Wednesday morning by Cord Busters.
The streaming giant said in its third-quarter earnings report that its premium ad-free plan in the United States will increase by $3 per month, to $22.99, starting Wednesday. Its one-stream basic plan will rise to $11.99 in the United States.
"Our starting prices of $6.99 in the US and £4.99 in the UK are lower than the competition and provide great value to consumers given the breadth and quality of our catalog." Netflix didn't say why it's ditching the Basic plan, but the move is likely a way to pull in more revenue.
A Netflix account is meant to be shared by people who live together in one household. People who are not in your household will need to sign up for their own account to watch Netflix. You can manage who uses your account by setting a Netflix Household.
A Netflix account is for use by one household. Everyone living in that household can use Netflix wherever they are — at home, on the go, on holiday — and take advantage of new features like Transfer Profile and Manage Access and Devices.
Your Netflix account is in use on too many devices. It means the maximum number of devices allowed to watch at the same time using your Netflix account has been reached. Your Netflix plan determines how many devices are allowed to watch at the same time using your account.
Netflix Standard - $15.49 a month (can add one person for $7.99 a month outside the household) Netflix Premium - $19.99 a month (can add two people for $7.99 a month each outside the household)
Netflix will have ways of knowing if you are still sharing your account with someone outside of your household. That's because the streaming service collects a lot of data about you, including what you watch, where you watch it, the location of your home, and device IDs.
Yes, passwords can be shared with users outside of the household, but for a fee. By default, a Netflix account can only be shared with members of the same household. However, one needs to be on a Standard or Premium Plan if they want to add extra users, who are not living in the same household, to their account.
Does Netflix offer a senior discount? Netflix does not offer a senior discount. A way that older people can pay less, or nothing, to watch Netflix is to share an account with family or friends. A single account can have up to 5 user profiles, and be watched on up to 4 different devices at once.
Can Netflix Basic be watched on TV?
You can watch Netflix on any supported smart TV, phone, tablet, streaming player, or game console that connects to the internet and offers the Netflix app, or at netflix.com using a computer.
In an effort to bring in even more revenue, Netflix also announced it's raising the price for its most expensive streaming service by $2 to $23 per month in the U.S. — a 10% increase — and its lowest-priced, ad-free streaming plan to $12 — another $2 bump.
How many devices can stream Netflix at the same time? Netflix allows different numbers of simultaneous streams depending on the plan. On both versions of the standard plans, you can have up to two devices streaming at the same time. This goes up to four simultaneous connections on the Premium plan.
Standard taps out at full HD, or 1920 x 1080P, whereas Premium can hit ultra HD, or 4K, which is a resolution of 3840 x 2160P. Premium is also the only plan with Netflix “spatial audio,” which promises more immersive sound without the need for surround-sound speakers.
4. Netflix Premium plan. The top-end Netflix subscription plan is called 'Premium', and it'll set you back to Rs 649 per month (Rs 7,788/ year). The plan is apt for a family or a group of friends as it comes with up to four devices support simultaneously.
