Netflix Is Testing HD Quality For Mobile And Basic Plans

Without making any announcement, Netflix has already upgraded the Rs 199/month Mobile Plan and Rs 499/month to HD quality.

Seeing how India’s video streaming space is becoming more and more competitive, Netflix is trying to increase its subscription numbers. Now, Netflix is testing HD quality for its mobile and basic plans.

Without announcing anything, the streaming platform has already upgraded the Rs 199/month Mobile Plan and Rs 499/month to HD quality. Users can now watch movies and TV shows in 720p. Before this, the video quality was limited to 480p only. Meanwhile, Netflix didn’t make any changes to the two other subscription plans.

Without announcing anything, the streaming platform has already upgraded the Rs 199/month Mobile Plan and Rs 499/month to HD quality.

However, this isn’t official yet as it is only being tested by Netflix. In its recent statement, Netflix said that the company was also trying to find ways to offer its members a more enjoyable and immersive experience. The company also emphasized that since this was only a test, not all members could access it.

While the upgrade will probably work on all phones and devices supporting the Netflix app, because of certification issues, users with some basic Android mobile won’t be able to watch HD video content. Only Android phones that have Widevine Level 1 can stream HD content. Low-end devices with Widevine Level 3 won’t be able to stream HD videos.

First-time users won’t receive first free month anymore as the platform already got rid of this policy. A Rs 5 is required for the first month.

The move proves Netflix’s efforts in boosting its number of subscribers in a competitive video streaming space. And now, with Disney Plus’ entry this March 29, the competition is even more intensified. Compared to other streaming services like Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Zee5, etc., Netflix is on the more expensive side.
