Netflix Just Rolled Out a New Mobile-Only Plan in the Philippines

At a cheaper price point!

(SPOT.ph) Streaming platform Netflix is available on several gadgets and devices, and while the subscription promises unlimited viewing on television, desktop, and mobile, there's no denying that having the app on your phone or tablet makes streaming easy when you're on the go. Be it on the commute or waiting in line, watching on a portable device is a good way to pass the time. The current monthly subscription has its perks, but you might feel as though you're not fully maxing out the option to stream on other devices. If you're strictly a mobile streamer, Netflix just rolled out a new Mobile Plan priced at P149 per month on March 12, meant for users who stream only on their phone or tablet.

According to Netflix's director of product innovation Patrick Flemming, the new plan is not yet available in all regions as countries are selected based on users' needs. According to their research, Filipinos use their phones to consume online content twice as much as the rest of the world does, so it makes sense they would launch it in the Philippines. Netflix is taking steps to meet the Philippines' mobile streaming demand with a new plan that comes at a compelling price point. The monthly Mobile Plan has rolled out in India, Malaysia, and Indonesia, with Thailand getting the new plan the same time as the Philippines.

The new Mobile Plan allows you to play shows and movies on smartphones and tablets only, with unlimited access to Netflix's library of content. Like the platform's other plans, you can stream your fave series or film without worrying about ads, and you can still create up to five profiles but you can only watch on one screen at a time. If a child watches on your account, the Mobile Plan still lets you create a Kids profile that comes with parental controls.

If you're the type to download an episode or a full movie on your phone at home to entertain yourself during the commute when you head out, the new plan also uses Smart Downloads, which makes recommendations on the next title you should download so your queue never runs out.

Both first-time users and current subscribers can avail of the plan. If you've been meaning to try Netflix but can't see yourself spending a lot for a monthly subscription, the new plan comes at a more affordable price. Already subscribed? You can shift to the new Mobile Plan if you think it'll work better for you. Should you decide to get the full plan, you can easily change it in your settings.
