Netflix testing RM17 mobile-only plan


Media resources from Netflix: Netflix is available on mobile via an Android app.

Video streaming platform Netflix is trialling its first mobile-only plan for just RM17 a month.

Under this plan, subscribers get unlimited access to movies and TV shows available on the platform but can only use it on one handheld device, either a phone or tablet.

However, the biggest restriction is that the content will only be available in standard definition (SD) and not high definition (HD).




If users want to watch Netflix on a laptop or television, they will have to opt for at least the Basic plan which costs RM33 a month but is also limited to SD and one screen at a time.

Other options include the RM42 Standard plan which allows users to view content in HD and on two "screens" simultaneously and the RM51 Premium plan which offers content in HD and Ultra HD, and the ability to view on up to four screens at the same time. 

If you wish to subscribe to the mobile-only plan, you will have use the mobile app or view the Netflix website on your smartphone. As of press time, the option does not appear if you view the site on a desktop or laptop.

This move seems to be in line with Netflix's recent announcement to test lower priced subscription plans to attract more users in Asia.
