Netflix launches free plan in Kenya

Netflix introduced a free plan that will now allow entertainment fans to enjoy almost all of Netflix’s content on android mobile phones, without paying a subscription fee.

The rollout of the free plan kicks off Tuesday and will only be available for people within the Kenyan territory.

The free plan will allow people in Kenya to access most of Netflix’s shows and films ads-free with personalised 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, “ said Cathy Conk, Netflix’s Director of Product Innovation.

She also said that “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.”
