Netflix has finally decided to lock horns with other popular video streaming services like the Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar in India. Netflix mobile only plan targets the Indian audience and is priced just at Rs 199. Netflix recently announced that almost all its shows will be available in Hindi in India now.
With mobile only Netflix is looking to target the audience who largely consume media via their mobile phones or tablets. The company also revealed that India has one of the biggest smartphone user bases across the world. Netflix mobile plan is half the price of the company’s existing basic monthly plan which costs Rs 499.
The Rs 199 plan only supports SD (480p) streaming and is only available for a single device. Netflix looks to increase its subscriber base in India by competing with other streaming apps like Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video, Alt Balaji, and Zee5 among others.
What is Netflix mobile only plan?
Netflix’s mobile only plan gives you access to the full catalog of Netflix, including hundreds of TV shows and movies just at Rs 199 per month. With one of the most popular Web Series in India the Sacred Games, nearing the release of its 2nd season, the plan will definitely see a boost in the subscription. Other shows which might interest you are, Stranger Things, and the Henry Cavill starer The Witcher.
What are the advantages of subscribing the Netflix mobile only plan?
The Netflix mobile only plan gives you an Ad-free experience but you won’t be able to see any HD content. The plan is restricted to 480p, which I think is OK for the mobile phone. You can also download your favorite shows or movies to watch them later.
You can sign up by downloading the official mobile app. The application is available for both iOS and Android.
Why Netflix is losing subscribers in the US?
Netflix announced that it was increasing its charges by 18%. The move backfired resulting in a loss of 1,30,000 subscribers in the US in the second quarter. India is one of the most important markets in the world for Netflix.
Amazon Prime Video is one of the best competitors of Netflix in India. Amazon offers benefits on the whole Amazon ecosystem like fast delivery with Amazon, Amazon Music streaming and a lot more starting at just Rs 129 per month.
