With the sole purpose of marketing promotions in India, Netflix has decided to offer free one-tier upgrades, only for its new members for the first 30 days of subscription, to enjoy upgraded and expensive plans at no additional cost. The offer will be only applicable to the Rs. 499 “Basic” and Rs. 649 “Standard” plans.
As per the new Netflix plans, if you log in and subscribe to the “Basic” plan you will be upgraded to benefits of the “Standard” plan for the next 30 days. Similarly, if you pick “Standard”, you will enjoy a “Premium” plan. A Premium Plan usually costs Rs. 799 per month.
“Basic” plan offering “Standard” provides high-definition (HD) video resolution. Two users can access this plan with a single account. “Premium” plan upgraded from “Standard” provides ultra-high-definition (UHD) video resolution (up to 4K). Four users can access it at the same time.
In a statement to Gadgets 360, a Netflix spokesperson said: “We’re looking at different marketing promotions in India to attract new members and give them a great Netflix experience.”
