Aug 19 – Reliance Jio released two prepaid mobile plans including a Netflix subscription on Friday.
The arrangement is a global first-of-its-kind prepaid package partnership for Netflix, according to the business.
“We are committed to bringing world-class services to our users. The launch of Netflix bundles with our prepaid plan is yet another step to demonstrate our resolve. Our partnership with global partners like Netflix has grown in strength, and together we are creating use cases for the rest of the world to follow,” Jio Platforms CEO Kiran Thomas said in a statement.
A Netflix subscription is previously available on certain Jio Postpaid and Jio Fibre plans, but this is the first time it will be available on a prepaid plan.
With this introduction, over 400 million Jio prepaid subscribers will be able to get a Netflix subscription via a Jio Prepaid bundled package.
“Over the years, we have launched a variety of successful local shows, documentaries and films, which have been loved by audiences across India. Our collection of must-watch stories is growing and our new prepaid bundle partnership with Jio will give more customers access to this exciting line-up of Indian content as well as some incredible stories from around the world,” Netflix Vice President of APAC Partnerships Tony Zameczkowski said.
The firm is selling two plans with 84 days validity with a Netflix subscription for Rs. 1,099 and Rs. 1,499, respectively.
The Rs. 1,099 plan includes a Netflix mobile subscription, unlimited 5G data or 2 GB of 4G internet per day, and unlimited voice calls.
Netflix mobile costs Rs. 149 per month and only allows you to stream material on mobile phones.
The pricier package, which costs Rs. 1,499, includes Netflix’s basic feature, which allows customers to watch on both mobile and television at the same time. It will have the same features as the lower-priced version, but will include 3GB of 4G data every day.
In India, the Netflix basic package costs Rs. 199 per month.
The 2GB data package with unlimited voice calls and 84 days validity costs Rs. 719, while the 3GB data plan costs Rs. 999.
