Netflix tests new price tiers for video serviceDecember 31, 2013 @ 7:09 am
(AP) - Netflix is testing new price plans for streaming video as it tries to lure more viewers.
Among the plans being tested are a $6.99-a-month plan that allows only one video stream to be watched at once, and a $9.99-a-month plan that allows three streams at one time, whether on a TV, tablet or computer.
A Netflix spokesman says not everyone will see the test prices and they may never roll out system wide.
Netflix's standard $7.99-a-month plan allows users watch video on up to 2 screens at once, including TVs and mobile devices. An $11.99-a-month service allows up to four shows at once. Netflix announced that plan in April.
Netflix saw strong growth this year as it introduced original content like "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black."
