Netflix attempted to expand its userbase in India in the past. Back in 2019, the company first introduced a consumer-friendly Rs. 199/M plan in India. However, this is for the first time that Netflix is slashing the price in India by a massive 60%.

The company’s move to reduce the price of its subscription plans comes amid intense competition from rival OTT platforms such as Display+Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video. However, the Netflix subscription is still costlier than the Amazon Prime subscription, which starts at Rs. 129 per month.
