Netflix launched in India with free one-month subscription

Mumbai, Jan 7 (IANS) After much anticipation, popular American on-demand video streaming service Netflix has made its way to India, that too with a free one-month subscription.

After the first month, users can choose between three packs — the basic pack for Rs.500, the standard pack for Rs.650 and the premium pack for Rs.800, according to Netflix’s official website.

The basic plan allows one person to stream series and movies in standard definition. The standard plan allows two people to simultaneously stream Netflix and in high definition when available.

The premium plan allows a maximum of four people to simultaneously stream TV series and movies. Additionally, select titles will be available in Ultra HD 4K to those who are using compatible devices.

Users can cancel their subscription anytime they want.

The Netflix service went live in India, among 130 other countries, during a keynote by co-founder and chief executive Reed Hastings at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 on Wednesday.

“Today you are witnessing the birth of a new global internet TV network. With this launch, consumers around the world — from Singapore to St. Petersburg, from San Francisco to Sao Paulo — will be able to enjoy TV shows and movies simultaneously — no more waiting,” Hastings said in a statement.

“With the help of the internet, we are putting power in consumers’ hands to watch whenever, wherever and on whatever device,” he added.

Netflix is available on virtually any device that has an Internet connection, including personal computers, tablets, smartphones, Smart TVs and game consoles, and automatically provides the best possible streaming quality based on available bandwidth.
