When the plan was first introduced in Malaysia back in 2016, users were only allowed to stream content in 480p standard definition (SD). Netflix upgraded the resolution output to 720p HD back in November.
Its other monthly plans namely Mobile, Standard and Premium remain the same at RM17, RM45 and RM55 respectively.
Netflix’s pricing plan varies where in some countries like Chile, users can subscribe to Standard or Premium and then add extra members, or users who do not live with the primary account holder, for an additional monthly fee. The extra member feature is currently unavailable in Malaysia according to information on its Help Centre.
As a measure to crack down on password sharing, the company has also announced that a Netflix account is meant to be shared among those residing in one household, therefore users who do not live in the same household as the primary account holder will be required to sign up for their own account.
