MUMBAI: Taking note of mobile’s popularity for digital content consumption, streaming giant Netflix has started testing mobile-only subscription plans in India. According to media reports, the company has started testing a mobile-only weekly plan priced at Rs 65 in the country. However, it has also been confirmed by the OTT platform that it is only a test, not a price cut.

Although users will get access to the entire catalogue of films and TV shows under this plan, it does not offer HD or Ultra HD content. The mobile-only plan will allow users to access the platform on mobile phone and tablet but only on one screen at a time.

Last month, it was reported that Netflix is testing a mobile-only monthly plan priced at Rs 250 for users in India. According to reports, the plan will be rolled out to everyone in phases.

"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 devices 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," the company also said.

Netflix has significantly upped its game in India since last year. Along with launching hits like Sacred Games, it has also come up with original movies. But in India, it is competing with a number of homegrown players such as ZEE5, Voot, ALTBalaji along with its international rival Amazon Prime Video.
