The company is also testing a monthly plan of Rs 250 per month for mobile-only access.
“We are always looking for ways to make Netflix more enjoyable and accessible. We will be testing different options in select countries where members can, for example, watch Netflix on their mobile device for a lower price and subscribe in shorter increments of time. Not everyone will see these options and we may never roll out these specific plans beyond the tests,” noted Netflix an email statement to Gadgets 360.
