Netflix tests RM17 mobile-only plan in Malaysia

According to a Reuters report, Netflix's mobile plan is priced at MYR 17 (€3.59) per month, compared to MYR 33 for its basic plan in the country.

Right now, the cheapest Netflix subscription available in the United Kingdom is the £5.99 a month Basic package, which only allows you to watch content in Standard definition (no HD or UHD) and only on one screen at a time, which could be a computer, TV, tablet or phone. Netflix confirmed in a statement to TechCrunch that the company is running similar trials in other places, though it refused to name any countries except for Malaysia. Global subscribers now make up 42 percent of total Netflix subscribers. The entry-level plan affords unlimited access to movies and TV shows for one device but is limited to standard definition quality. This is followed by recent Netflix's CEO Reed Hasting's announcement, where he stated the company planning to expand its reach in Asia and to attract more consumers to use their streaming service. It's also clearly an attempt to better compete with alternative services that cost far less than Netflix's typical $8-$10 subscription plans.
