Netflix has announced new and reduced prices for plans in India, where the subscription for mobile only now starts at 149 Rs per month instead of the previous 199 Rs per month. The new plans will apply to all customers. The move is likely part of Netflix’s attempt to woo multiple subscribers in the country, as it is still the most expensive streaming service in the country.
Under the new pricing scheme, the Netflix Basic plan will now cost 199 Rs a month; the plan used to cost 499 Rs per. month earlier, so this is quite a drop in price. The standard Netflix plan now costs Rs 499 per month instead of Rs 649 as the previous price.
Finally, the most expensive Netflix plan, which is the premium plan, will now cost 649 Rs per month. This plan used to cost Rs 799 a month earlier. Here are the other details you need to keep in mind about the new plans.

The price change will take place on December 14, which is today and will take effect from the next billing cycle for all members. New members can simply sign up for Netflix and choose the plans for the new prices.
For Netflix members on the mobile, base, or standard plan, the company will upgrade them to the plan, which is one level higher than the current plan, at the same monthly price you pay for Netflix today. So mobile subscription users will be upgraded to the basic plan for 199 Rs per month.
