Netflix tries all within its best to roll out plans for South African users. More plans have been added to make it more affordable to mobile users, per month.
Recently, they made the launch of a mobile plan across sub-Saharan Africa official. Mobile users could access this relatively affordable option as Netflix adds it to their existing plans.
On 29 June, Netflix made the announcement thereby introducing a mobile plan for customers.
Since last year, the streaming service had been running tests on two mobile plans options since 2020.
According to a spokesperson, the plan will make it easier for interested smartphone users to enjoy their services.
“This plan will make it even easier for anyone with a smartphone to enjoy Netflix.
“At home or on the go, now more people can watch all the shows and movies Netflix has to offer, wherever and whenever they want.”
More features had been added to the existing ones including watching movies and series offline. Not completing the download wouldn’t hinder subscribers.
