Plus, there are also a number of subscriptions plans to choose from including one that allows more than four devices to stream simultaneously.  The following is a rundown of the main features you get by subscribing to one of many Netflix plans:

1. Ad free: This is my personal favorite Netflix feature for the simple reason that I no longer have to tolerate ads every 10 minutes while watching a TV series or movie. Yes, the annoying ads are now gone! Neither do you have to bother about those pop-up and banner ads prevalent in many online streaming sites.

2. Watch anywhere, on any device: It doesn’t matter where you are – in your bedroom, on the subway, or while stuck in an airport lounge – you can Netflix your favorite TV shows and movies anywhere, anytime. Better still, you can watch your favorite content basically on any device – be it your laptop, iPhone, Android handset, or any other handheld device.

4. Huge database: Netflix arguably has the most extensive database of movies and TV shows (Netflix originals, as well as third party content). So, you are likely to find your favorite movies and TV shows on the platform without any issue whatsoever.

5. Downloads: You can also save many TV shows and movies locally to watch later (even when you are offline). Just note that this feature is available on select TV shows and movies only.

Netflix allows you to choose from the following three plans:

1. Basic Plan: As the name suggests, it’s the most basic, hence cheapest Netflix plan. While you do have unlimited access to movies and TV shows, the basic plan covers only one screen at a time. Also, you won’t be able to watch your content in HD or UHD.

2. Standard Plan: It’s probably the most popular Netflix plan among the three. It’s affordable and allows access to content in HD resolution – although, Ultra HD or UHD is not available. The Standard plan allows you to access content on two different screens simultaneously.
