Netflix, which is a California based company is testing its plans in the Indian market to retain its customers for an extended period. They had offered an Rs.199 affordable plan which is still available. Netflix was introduced in India in 2016 and is used widely in the country since then.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings had said in a conference in Delhi that Netflix is investing 3000 crores for creating the local contents in India, including cricket matches. He mentioned that the Indian audience is very important to the company, and they are planning to be more Indian in their contents.
However, Netflix needs to compete with Hotstar and Amazon prime, which is quite popular among Indian viewers and is much cheaper compared to Netflix. Flipkart is also one of the competitors. Hotstar and Flipkart are making it difficult by providing free contents to watch.
The new move by Netflix might give an advantage by gaining a number of long term subscribers in the Indian market.
