Netflix is trying to attract more users in India as the Online Streaming giant has launched a new Mobile Only plan for mobile users in India. Yes, the new Mobile Only plan from Netflix is launched for Rs. 199 only. This is the cheapest plan available from Netflix for Mobile users who can enjoy the full content library of the platform.
This low-rate plan comes with some restrictions. You can only explore contents through your smartphone with this plan. The content will not be available to stream in full HD resolution, the resolution for the content will be 480 pixels only.
Of course, the same plan can be explored on big-screened tablet devices as well. So you can use this plan on your Smartphone and Tablet devices. However, you are not allowed to connect your device to the Television. You can not stream Netflix content on a Television screen through Google Chromecast or any such streaming devices.
At a press conference held in New Delhi, the company’s officials have announced this new mobile plan for the Indian consumers. The plan is exclusively launched in India as of now and there are no plans to release the same for other regions. However, the company has started testing out the low-priced plans for other Asian countries as well. So we will get to see the low-priced plans in other Asian countries very soon.
Further, they added that they are also planning to launch a short-term plan i.e. Weekly subscription plan as well in India.
Previously, Netflix was offering the cheapest subscription plan for Rs. 450 in India which is now reduced to Rs. 199. This plan is allowing users to stream out shows in SD quality on the big Television screen. This plan is also currently active and you can still opt for this plan if you wish to watch shows on Television screen instead of Mobile devices only.
If we talk about the competition in the market, there are popular rivals such as Amazon Prime and Hotstar who are offering Annual Plan at just Rs. 999. Netflix’s plans are still way more costlier than these rivals.
