Ecstatic at the success of its Rs 199 mobile-only plan that it launched in India in August, Netflix is going to replicate the plan in other global markets too, the company’s Chief Product Officer Gregory K Peters has said.

The Rs 199 mobile subscription plan in the Indian market is Netflix’s fourth Indian plan, in addition to the existing basic, standard and premium plans which are priced between Rs 499 and Rs 799.


“We’ve been very, very happy with the mobile plan. It’s actually performing better than we tested. We’ll look at testing that in other markets because we think there are other markets which has similar conditions that make it likely that that’s going to be successful for us there as well,” Peters said during the streaming giant’s Q3 earnings call with analysts on Wednesday.

“We think about revenue is the guiding principle for as we do these different tests and trying to figure out, what is the right set of plans that have the right benefits, the right features that are delivered at the right price for the subscribers in any given market.

“And I think what we’re exploring is as we are operating in markets that have very, very different conditions, very different levels of affluence and other forms of entertainment competition, etc,” he added.
