Netflix tests a new mobile device subscription plan in "selected countries", including India, which only costs $ 3.63 a month. It is half the cost of Netflix Indian basic flow plan covering all units and costs $ 7.27 (INR500) as seen by Variety .
Netflix told The Verge in a statement, "We are always looking for ways to make Netflix more enjoyable and accessible. We will test different options in selected countries where members, for example, can see Netflix on their mobile device at a lower price and subscribe to shorter times. "The last part is exciting as it may mean that Netflix starts weekly or weekly subscriptions instead of monthly plans.
As it is a test, not all users will see the new plan and it is possible that Netflix will not make it a permanent solution. Netflix refused to share which other countries would get the test beyond India.
The test in India makes sense as Netflix has already expressed interest in the country. Last week, Netflix product VP Todd Yellin starred in Mumbai, describing the streaming giant's plans to expand interactive TV shows and Netflix's original Indian content. He pointed out the success of Netflix's original Indian series Sacred Games about a policeman who hunted a criminal superior, which the overseas audience was also prepared for.
