With a vast library of TV shows, movies, and original programming, most people would agree that Netflix is an essential part of the entertainment landscape.
Like its competitors, Netflix offers a variety of subscription tiers, which differ in price and features. In the US, Netflix even still offers the ability to order DVD and Blu-ray discs in the mail.
Here’s a guide to what Netflix charges for each of its plans.
How much Netflix costs per month
Netflix offers three streaming plans: Basic, Standard, and Premium, starting at $9 per month and ending at $18 per month. Here’s what you get with each plan, and how much each one costs.
|Subscription plan||Monthly price||Streaming quality||Simultaneous streams||Access to content|
|Basic||$8.99||Standard Definition (not HD)||One||Every Netflix title|
|Standard||$13.99||High Definition (HD)||Two||Every Netflix title|
|Premium||$17.99||HD and 4K Ultra HD||Four||Every Netflix title|
Additionally, each Netflix plan lets you download movies and shows onto your device to watch when you don’t have internet. The Basic plan lets you download onto one device at once, the Standard plan allows you two devices, and the Premium plan gives you four.
How much Netflix’s DVD and Blu-ray plans cost per month
In the US, Netflix continues to offer discs by mail at dvd.netflix.com.
With both pricing plans, Netflix sends you discs that you can keep for as long as you want. As soon as you return that disc, Netflix immediately sends you the next disc listed in your queue. There’s no limit to how many discs you can watch over time, though – the only limitation is how quickly you can watch and return discs.
You can order a massive variety of shows and movies by disc, even including some that streaming Netflix doesn’t have.
Here are the pricing plans. Note that they’ll differ depending on whether you want just DVDs, or both DVDs and Blu-rays.
|Subscription plan||Monthly price||How many discs you can have at once||How many discs can you rent per month||Late fees|
|Standard||$7.99 for DVDs, $9.99 for DVDs and Blu-rays||One disc||Unlimited||None|
|Premier||$11.99 for DVDs, $14.99 for DVDs and Blu-rays||Two discs||Unlimited||None|
Once you order a DVD from dvd.netflix.com, it’ll arrive in about one to three business days. When you’re done with it, just place it back in the red envelope provided and put it in the mail.
