Netflix is one of the most popular online streaming services which operates in over 190 countries and serves over 130 million subscribers.
The streaming service includes a vast library of different entertainment media like TV series, movies, documentaries across a wide variety of genres and languages that can be watched by the members across any internet-connected device.
A lot of people, especially in developing countries where these streaming services have recently started vying for subscribers, are still not yet entirely convinced by the new streaming services that still face stiff competition from local cable and DTH services. The first month of Netflix subscription is free.
But to encourage people to try out the streaming service and its content, Netflix offers its subscribers a month of the free trial before they start billing them.
This free month trial comes without any commitment or contract and can be cancelled at anytime the subscriber decides — even before the billing begins. All you need to do is sign up for the free trial.
Netflix has three plans in India — Basic, Standard and Premium. Features available with each one are discussed in detail below.
Update: Netflix has also launched a mobile plan at INR 199 per month in India. Users can watch a single stream concurrently on either your smartphone or tablet. This plan won’t work on your PC or smart TV. Read more about it here.
