MANILA, Philippines, March 15 ------ Netflix is excited to announce the launch of a new mobile plan for the Philippines. At P149 per month, members will be able to enjoy all the films and shows on Netflix — uninterrupted and without ads — on one smartphone or tablet at a time. This plan is in addition to the existing Basic, Standard, and Premium plans.
Filipinos are passionate entertainment fans who love stories from many different genres and countries around the world - "To All The Boys," "Crash Landing On You," "The Witcher," "Stranger Things," "Kingdom," "Money Heist" and more. This new plan brings together two things that Filipinos love — entertainment and mobile devices — Filipinos spend an average of 3.3 hours a day watching online content on their mobile phones, which reflects that the Philippines is truly a mobile-first country.
"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,” said Patrick Flemming, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix.
