Netflix Officially Announces Rs. 199 per-month Mobile-only Plan for India – read more details about the plan inside!
India is the first country picked by Netflix to introduce the mobile-only plan, which has been priced at just Rs 199/month. This plan was initially being tested at Rs 250/month, which is a decent price but is brought down to Rs 199 to make it more attractive for its users. This brings down the cost of watching content on Netflix down to a third of what Indian viewers used to pay earlier.
The Rs 199 mobile-only plan lets you watch content at SD (standard definition) quality, without any ads or interruptions. You can watch on a smartphone or tablet and it’s also restricted to just one individual user. No family or sharing plans available for this tier. It also supports the popular ‘Smart Downloads’ feature available to mobile users. However, casting support is not available, so you’ll have to watch it on a mobile device.
This announcement falls in line with recent reports that hinted of the company’s plan to launch a ‘mobile-only plan’ that will allow users to get more affordable access to a huge library of TV shows and movies. What’s even interesting is that Netflix has also reduced prices for its existing subscription plans, which now start at Rs 499/month as opposed to Rs 549/month. Check out the updated plans right here:
Basic – Rs 499/month
Standard – Rs 649/month
Premium – Rs 799/month
While Netflix has only started offering a monthly mobile-only plan for Indian users, the company told us that weekly plans have been under testing for some time as well. However, we’re not getting the weekly subscription right now and we don’t even know whether we ever will.
Netflix has picked the perfect time to introduce the mobile-only subscription plan since Sacred Games 2 is set to arrive later next month and a lot of users could pick this new cheaper plan to watch this regional series on the move. The mobile-only subscription is going to make its way to more countries in the coming months.
