Netflix launched Thursday its mobile-only subscription plan in the Philippines for only P149 per month to capture the audience with a restricted budget.
“We are launching a new plan for the Philippines… We are super excited to announce that it will be offered for P149 only,” Netflix director for Product Innovation Patrick Flemming told reporters during a video teleconference from Los Angeles, California, on Wednesday.
For only P149 a month, Flemming said Netflix subscribers could “enjoy all the films and shows on uninterrupted and without ads on one smartphone or tablet at a time.”
The American video streaming service current plan offerings are basic at P369 per month, standard at P459 a month, and premium at P549 per month.
The mobile-only plan will also be simultaneously launched in Thailand. The product was also available in other Asian countries such as India, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

Flemming said Netflix is confident about providing the mobile-only subscription in the Philippines as Filipinos spend more than three hours a day watching online content on mobile phones.
“We’re enthusiastic to introduce the mobile plan in the Philippines to 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,” he said.
Those who wish to avail of the plan should download the Netflix app or visit its website and choose the P149 per month plan.
In 2019, Netflix reported that its subscribers grew 20% by 8.8 million year-on-year bringing the total to 16 million.
