Netflix is now testing cheaper long-term plans in India
Netflix, which started experimenting with the mobile-only monthly plan before making it offering earlier this year, is now reportedly testing another plan in India. The company is now testing long-terms plans at a discounted rate.
As per the reports, Netflix is offering select users three options for subscriptions — 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month plans, with up to 50 percent discount. The report claims that the 3-month plan has 20 percent discount while the 6-month plan offers 30 percent discount.
Going by this, the 12-month plan should be offering 50 percent discount. Currently, the company offers four plans in the Indian market. The lowest priced plan costs ₹199 per month and is a mobile-only offering while the costliest premium plan is priced at ₹799 per month.
Commenting on the new subscription plans, a Netflix spokesperson said, “We believe that our members may value the flexibility that comes from being able to pay for a few months at once. As always, this is a test and we will only introduce it more broadly if people find it useful.”
It is still unclear whether these long-term plans will be available for all of the subscription offerings including Mobile, Basic, Standard, and Premium.
