The cheapest is the $6.99 Standard with ads plan. As the name suggests, subscribers to this tier will need to sit though ad breaks before and during videos.

For those wanting an ad-free viewing experience, Netflix offers a $15.49 Standard plan and a $22.99 Premium plan. The main differences between these tiers is that the Premium plan unlocks 4K support (select titles), spatial audio, and the ability to stream on more devices at the same time.
