Netflix Launches in 130 Countries, Plans starting from Rs 500 in India with Free First Month



In India, its hard to rent a movie Online and that’s one of the main reasons you could find most of the users opting for Pirated copies either from a nearby DVD store or torrents. With Netflix finally in entering India, we can certainly see a drastic change in the entertainment industry with users opting for legal movies on the go. We have already seen the heavy adoption of the 4G services in India; that’s going to change in 2016 with the launch of the Reliance Jio services where users would be able to access to high-speed Internet.

Following this, there would be a surge in the Video Content usage which is where services like Netflix would win. Today, at the CES 2016 event, Netflix has announced the services for India with plans starting from Rs 500 though we had expected these to start from Rs 250 onwards. Following are the options that you get from Netflix at the moment in India after you signup for the first one-month free trial.

The service offers you with a variety of content ranging from Bollywood to Hollywood all available legally. The best part is that once you signup and select a few favourite movies you get some amazing recommendations based on their personalization options. The current plans are based on the number of screens, which means the numbers of users using the service at the same time. If you wish to share the service within your family, then the four screens options are the best as it comes with ULTRA HD content too though that’s limited to the device capabilities and the internet service.

Developer: Netflix, Inc.
Price: Free+

Along with India, the Netflix is now officially available in 129 other countries including Russia, Indonesia, Poland, Singapore. The company is also expecting to launch their services in China in the near future. Reed Hasting, Co-Founder & CEO, Netflix has mentioned that there was a 14% drop in BitTorrent usage in Australia after the launch of Netflix and in Q4 2015 alone, users have watched more than 12 billion hours of Netflix video.

Along with the earlier 50 countries and the newly added 130 countries, the company is planning to reach the 200 mark by the end of this year. Once you have a better connection, the next task will be choosing the better plan since the video streaming can consume a major share of your FUP limit. According to the company, One hour of standard definition streaming results in ending up anywhere between 300-700 MB of data, while an HD and Ultra HD streamings requires about 3GB and 7GB of data per hour respectively.
