Content steaming platform Netflix is experimenting a weekly mobile-only plan for Rs 65 — the lowest ever cost it has offered its services in, exclusively in India.
The mobile-only set up permits users to look at content on only one smartphone or pill screen at a time, in keeping with media reports last week.
The new set ups showing on Netflix India’s web site lists the weekly mobile-only plan for Rs sixty five, basic plan for Rs 125, standard plan (two screens allowed) for Rs 165, and
ultra set up for Rs two hundred (four screens in 4k).
However, the mobile-only set up doesn’t support shows in HD or 4K quality.
Despite delivery what appears to be the foremost cheap plans, Netflix still remains the most expensive over-the-top (OTT) content streaming platform in India.
Other OTT players like Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar Premium charge Rs 199 each per month with added benefits.
Being the planet second-largest smartphone market has most cost-effective knowledge rates, India has become a major focus point for international content and music streaming platforms.
Recently, Apple Music slashed down its previous Rs a hundred and twenty per month pack rate to Rs ninety nine.
A Netflix advocate aforementioned, “We are always looking for ways to make Netflix more enjoyable and accessible.
We will be testing different options in select countries where members can, for example, watch Netflix on their mobile device for a lower price and subscribe in shorter increments of time. Not everyone will see these options and we may never roll out these specific plans beyond the tests.”
Netflix further said that the mobile-only plan is only a test. It is not the rollout of a new plan. The currently applicable
Netflix plans are:
1. Basic (Rs.500) – Mount Rushmore State (standard definition) and you’ll stream at the same time on one device
2. Standard (Rs 650) HD (high definition) and you can stream simultaneously on 2 devices;
3. Premium (Rs 800) Ultra HD (high definition) and you can stream simultaneously on four devices.
