If you enjoy the flexibility of watching Netflix on the go, then Netflix has good news for you. After almost a year since the streaming giant first rolled out a mobile trial version here, Netflix officially released its RM17 mobile plan in Malaysia today.
This Mobile-only plan - the first to be launched in Southeast Asia - retains all the same characteristics as its trial version, right down to the subscription fee. At just RM17 a month, it is half the price of the Basic plan, and almost a third of the price of the Premium. Effective immediately, the Mobile plan is available for subscription for everyone in Malaysia.
Subscribers on the Mobile plan can only stream or download Netflix at standard definition on either mobile or tablet. While users are allowed to create up to 5 profiles, they are restricted to watching it on just one screen at any given time. Furthermore, this plan also does not support casting or mirroring the app to other devices. Most importantly, there is no restriction on content - Mobile subscribers still gain unlimited access to the entire Malaysian Netflix movie and TV series library.
According to Netflix, Malaysians subscribers consumer twice as much content on their smartphones compared to the average Netflix subscriber. The new Mobile plan means Malaysians can anywhere from 49% to 67% in subscription fees every month!
