Netflix is testing cheaper, mobile-only subscription plans
Netflix is testing cheaper subscription options in some overseas markets. The catch: The plan only allows users to stream content on a mobile device.
The first trial run has already in Malaysia, where users can currently sign up for a cheaper, mobile-only subscription for just RM17 (or about $4) per month.
The plan allows users to stream movies and TV shows to one mobile device, either a smartphone or tablet. High-definition video is not included in the plan. The next cheapest option, called the Basic Plan, is roughly double the cost at RM33 (about $8). It allows users to watch content on a laptop or TV, but also only streams in standard definition. HD content is included in the Standard Plan at RM42 (about $10) per month.
