Netflix Comes to India, Plans Start at Rs 500 a Month

Netflix has announced its service in India and 130 other markets in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. Netflix is an on-demand internet media streaming facility that is very popular in the US and parts of Europe. It is available in more than 50 countries across the world, including Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany and more. Last year, the company expanded its services to Japan, Spain, Portugal and Italy. And now it will be available everywhere including India (except China).

Plans for the on-demand TV, movies, and video streaming powerhouse - now available in 190 countries - start in India at Rs. 500 per month for access on 1 SD screen. For Rs. 650 per month you can watch HD content on 2 screens at a time, and Rs. 800 per month will get you 4K content on up to 4 screens simultaneously. You can signup for Netflix via its website or the Netflix apps on , iOS, Windows, and other platforms. 

All you need to do is enter your card details during signup - unless you are trying to make a purchase via iOS or Android and the store already has your card details - but you can enjoy a free one-month trial on all plans before you are billed. If you get an SMS for a charge of Rs. 70 or similar amount, don't worry, that's just an authorisation check, and you haven't actually been charged anything.

During signup you have to specify if you are above 18 and this means there is not going to be a lot of censored content, while everything will be rated. However, while creating a profile Netflix lets you identify children so that they don’t get access to any adult content.

Netflix is offering one month’s free trial for users in India. Users can access Netflix through an app on a smart TV, a videogame console, a streaming player or a smartphone/ tablet. You can check out Netflix here.
