Nairobi, Kenya, Sept 21 – Netflix has launched a free plan that will allow entertainment fans in Kenya to enjoy several of Netflix’s contents on android mobile phones, without paying a subscription fee.
Cathy Conk, Netflix’s Director of Product Innovation said the free plan will allow people in Kenya to access most of Netflix’s shows and films ads-free with personalized recommendations and parental controls.
“At Netflix, we want everyone to be able to enjoy the suspense of Blood & Water, the romance of Bridgerton, and the adventure of Army of the Dead. Now we’re giving audiences in Kenya the chance to experience these stories for themselves — completely free of charge, ” she said.
“If you’ve never watched Netflix before — this is a great way to experience our service. We hope it’s a great match and that many of the people who try our free plan love Netflix so much that over time they upgrade to a full, paid subscription so you can enjoy our full catalog on your TV or laptop as well.”
To sign-up for the service, subscribers will simply be required to enter their email address, confirm they are 18 years or over and create a password. They will then enjoy the personalized recommendations, parental controls, and create multiple profiles (including Kids).
Some of the popular shows that will be on offer will include the highly-anticipated upcoming new season of Blood & Water which premieres globally on 24 September, the newly-released Nigeria series, King of Boys: Return of the King and the new season of the much-loved Money Heist, amongst others.
Recently, Netflix launched a mobile-only plan in Kenya at Kshs. 300 alongside the Basic plan (Kshs. 700), Value Plan (Kshs. 1 100 ) and Premium plan (Kshs. 1 450).
