In a surprising but pleasant move for users, Netflix has officially dropped its subscription plan prices in India. The price cut is as much as 60% percent but the exact benefit will depend on what plan you were using and which one you want to use now. The announcement was made this morning and it even started sending out update emails to all subscribers.
Starting with the entry-level plan, Netflix Mobile now costs INR 149 per month as compared to INR 199 previously. It is a plan that offers SD streaming (480p) and can only be used on a smartphone or tablet. Netflix Basic will now cost you INR 199 per month which is a significant price drop from the previous price of INR 499. It has the same benefits as the Mobile plan but can also be used on a laptop/desktop and TVs.
Netflix Standard is now priced at INR 499 which makes it INR 150 cheaper than the previous pricing. It offers streaming in up to Full HD (1080p) along with support for streaming on two devices at the same time. The top-of-the-line Netflix Premium will cost you INR 649 per month which is also a benefit of INR 150 on monthly basis. It gives you the best of what Netflix has to offer i.e. support for 4K Ultra HD streaming with HDR and the ability to stream on up to four devices simultaneously.
All existing Netflix subscribers will get upgraded to a better plan for the same price automatically. If you are subscribed to the Premium plan, the company will start charging you lower from the next billing cycle. There will also be a pop-up confirmation for users when they will log in to the Netflix app. If they do not wish to go for the higher benefits for the same price, they can always choose to opt for the preferred plan.
