Netflix offers three subscription plans: Basic, Standard and Premium. And the important thing to know is that the plan does not determine access to content, meaning to say that there's no need to worry that a cheaper plan might not be able to watch some shows that only those with premium plans can.
One of the key differences between the plans is the resolution you can watch at and also the number of devices that can log on simultaneously. With a Basic subscription, which costs RM33 a month, you will only be able to watch videos at 480p. That's not ideal given that anyone who has bought a new TV in the past three or so years is likely to have a Full HD TV. Likewise, if your notebook and mobile device is relatively new, it is likely to have a display that supports Full HD resolution and beyond too. Plus, with a Basic subscription, you can only watch Netflix on a single device at any one time.
A Standard subscription is recommended for most users as it will give you access to videos in Full HD (1080p) resolution. Furthermore, it will let you watch on two devices simultaneously, which is great for couples or families who want to watch different shows. The Standard plan is only slightly pricier at RM42 each month.
For cinephiles, the Premium plan is for you as it allows you to watch shows up to Ultra HD or 4K. It also lets you watch Netflix on up to four devices simultaneously, which is great for large families. One thing to note, however, is that not all shows are available in Ultra HD, though most of the newer and more popular titles are. Of course, it goes without saying that you need a 4K display to be able to take full advantage of the 4K content as well. The Premium plan is the most costly at RM51 a month.
