Netflix is running a promotional discount in India that gives the 1st month at just Rs. 5. The discount is only available to selected new members who are joining the streaming service, which means not all new users will see it — hence, the whole luck argument — while existing Netflix account holders won’t see it at all. Moreover, it’s restricted to those who sign up on computers and Android phones. For what it’s worth though, it’s applicable to whichever Netflix plan you choose, be it the Rs. 199 “mobile”, Rs. 499 “basic”, Rs. 649 “standard”, or Rs. 799 “premium”.
A Netflix spokesperson said: “This is a new marketing promotion designed to help more people discover Netflix. Depending on its success, we may roll it out more widely.” The new a-month-of-Netflix-for-five-rupees offer essentially replaces the one-month free trial — it was phased out in India in December — given the extremely low cost. And though Netflix says that it might be expanded in the future, it’s worth noting it’s not a “price test”.
