Malaysians are really dependent on their smartphones, so much so that Netflix has actually released a special subscription plan for mobile users at only MYR17 per month in Malaysia. This subscription enables you to enjoy all of Netflix’s local content with no interruption or ads all on your mobile or tablet.
This gives Malaysian four plans to choose from; Basic, Standard, Premium and now Mobile. The mobile plan will continue to have features such as Smart Downloads, mobile previews, adaptive UI, and sharing to social media and all local content is available for streaming at a maximum resolution of 540p.
Of course, there are some limitations to look out for. The mobile plan means you can only watch on your mobile or tablet, and any attempt to stream cast or even duplicate your mobile screen to your smart tv will not work. It’s also limited to one user per account and one device for downloads, so you can’t share your account easily compared to other plans.
This new Netflix mobile plan is already available, so you can register for an account now, while existing customers can always downgrade to the mobile plan with no hassle if they prefer.
