The cost of living isn’t getting any cheaper, so many of us are looking to save.

There are three different Netflix plans to choose from: Basic, Standard, and Premium.

Each has its own prices and perks, and fully understanding these is key to saving big bucks.

For the basic pay £6.99/$9.99 per month.

This will give you fairly low definition 480p video quality and be viewable on a single device at all times.

That default Plan is more expensive at £10.99 / $15.49 per month.

You now get Full HD 1080p viewing and the option to watch Netflix on two devices at the same time.

Then there are the bonus Plan that costs a whopping £15.99/$19.99 per month.

This gives you 4K Ultra HD resolution, the best quality currently available on Netflix.

You also get HDR (or High Dynamic Range), which offers better contrast and a wider range of colors.

And you can also watch on four different devices at the same time.

Are you paying too much for Netflix?

To save money, you need to figure out if you have the right plan.

For example, if you only ever watch TV via the app on a small iPhone screen, you may be completely satisfied with the 480p resolution.

If you don’t have a 4K TV and never use more than two devices at a time, don’t pay premium when standard will do.

And your internet might not be fast enough to stream 4K anyway. Netflix recommends a download speed of at least 25 Mbps.

To check this, go to Netflix and search for “test patterns”.

Play one and look for “3840 x 2160” in the upper-right corner: that means you’re getting full 4K.

It’s also possible that even with a high-resolution laptop screen, you won’t get the best quality.

Some browsers do not support streaming above 720p for Netflix.

For example, you cannot stream 4K Netflix on Google Chrome even if you have a 4K laptop.

As such, you might be better off with a Standard or even a Basic plan.

Also, keep in mind that while it’s not legal to share your Netflix account outside of your household, it’s okay to use the same login inside a home.

So don’t feel compelled to have multiple Netflix accounts in a single house when you could all split the bill.

Interestingly, there could be some cheaper options later this year.

Netflix already offers mobile-only plans in some parts of the world.

And the company is expected to launch a cheaper ad-supported subscription later this year.

This could lower your bills even more – but only if you’re willing to accept ads that interrupt your TV.

You can change your subscription level at any time by logging into the Netflix website.
