Netflix Is Testing a $3.62 Mobile-Only Monthly Plan

But there a few good reasons you'll never use it

March 22, 2019 9:00 am

Netflix raised all their prices in January, probably because they’re spending $13 billion on programming and you’ll pay whatever they charge.

Well, so far.

We’ve all got our tipping point, and with Disney programming (aka Marvel/Star Wars) leaving the network and so many other streaming options available, $16 a month or more is gonna start to sound damn pricey at some point. So good news for some users: Netflix is testing some mobile-only models for as low as three bucks and change.

There are a lot of caveats here: the reduced price plan (for now) is just available in India, viewers only get standard definition streams and they can only stream to one device. Still, the $3.62 plan isn’t the only inexpensive model the company is trying, which gives us hope for a cheaper domestic plan — just as the company is testing out more expensive subscriptions elsewhere.

But maybe I’ll just stay stateside and be content with Spotify and Hulu.
