If you are in Kenya, you can now watch Netflix for free. For users in Kenya, Netflix has launched a free plan which has the available catalog cut down by 25%.
As per official reports, the ad-free Android exclusive plan does not require any payment information from users when signing up. Those interested simply need to sign up with a valid email and confirm they are above 18 years of age. The catch is that the available catalog is cut down to 25% of all movies and shows found in the platform’s paid tier.
Users on the new Android free plan won’t be able to cast content to TVs and other devices and don’t have the option to download titles on their devices for offline viewing. Other standard Netflix features like personalized recommendations, multiple profiles, ad-free playback and parental controls are available. Netflix said in an official statement that this new plan is meant to test how many free users will eventually switch over to the paid service and has not confirmed if the free tier will make its way to more regions.
According to Netflix, the free plan will start rolling out in Kenya today over the next few weeks. 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.
