Is 4k Netflix worth it? In this video, we take a look at Netflix’s offerings, compare its service to competitors, and decide whether the average consumer should pay $20 per month to get the Netflix content library in premium 4k.

Holy high prices, Batman!

Long gone are the days of a single tier price plan for Netflix. We at Slickdeals remember a simpler time when you could access HD video on the platform for only $9.99/month. Sadly, HD video is no longer available on Netflix’s most affordable plan.

As of May 2022, Netflix’s price tiers are as follows:

Basic – $9.99/month for 480p streaming on 1 device

Standard – $15.49/month for 1080p streaming on 2 devices

Premium – $19.99/month for 4k streaming on 4 devices

That means any individual who wants to watch Ozark’s final season in 4k is going to have to shell out $20 minimum. And if you’re on a tight budget, forget about it! The most affordable plan only awards you 480p resolution, and at $10 per month, that seems like a joke.

However, we’re not here to discuss the merits of Netflix’s most affordable plan. We want to talk about Netflix’s most expensive plan. It will cost you $20 per month to get that crystal clear 4k streaming video resolution. That price seems pretty steep. Is it worth it?
