Netflix coming to India
Netflix has been there for a long time in other countries.Users are charged with a subscription fees per month and they get access to various shows for streaming on Netflix.Due to the rise of people watching more and more TV-series in India,Netflix has bee eyeing to take the potential market to its advantage but due to poor net speeds and a low population with proper internet connections,Netflix has been having second thoughts.Not to forget that torrents have always been the preference of people who watch TV series for free.
However,with the launch of 4G internet in India from Airtel,they can finally launch a service with Airtel.Reliance also launched 4G service for its employees and soon they will start it for customers.
Netflix is likely to launch next week during the trade show CES 2016.Singapore and Hong Kong are one of the Asian nations along with India to receive Netflix.
How much could Netflix cost?
There is a 8.99$(about ₹600) for a month in the U.S. and you get HD quality movies and TV shows on any two screen at the same time.
We think that it will be less than ₹600 in India as that will be very expensive and they will take time to establish the market,so introductory prices will have to be lower than than.
