Friday News Round-up

Netflix Testing Mobile-only Subscriptions

According to The Verge and a Malaysian newspaper The Star, Netflix is supposedly testing new payment plans directed specifically at mobile users. This would cut membership costs by approximately 50%. Phones and tablets make up  35% of Netflix sign-ups around the world and there is a consistent rise of mobile Netflix users globally, particularly in countries where less time is spent watching traditional TV or using computers.

60% of global Netflix subscribers open the mobile app at least once a month, according to Cameron Johnson, Netflix’s director of product innovation. The company is evidently targeting Asian and East Asian countries with the new subscription tiers, where the biggest increases are seen in consistent mobile usage. There is no confirmation yet that these new pricing tiers will be available in the US, but we’ll keep you posted.
