Netflix Arrives in the Philippines - First Month Free!

Finally, the popular TV and movie streaming service Netflix  arrives in the Philippines along with 129 other countries. This news was first announced at the annual Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.



Subscription starts at 370 Pesos per month with basic streaming services.



Free for the First Month, Upgrade, Downgrade, Cancel Any Time

Netflix is offering a free trial for the first month and you can change your plan anytime either to upgrade, downgrade or cancel your subscription.

Netflix offers the largest collection of movies and TV collections in the world. It currently has 100,000 DVD titles in its collection. It was founded in 1997 and with more than 20Million subscribers, it is the leading provider of on-demand movie and TV streaming service in the United States. 

Competing Against Piracy

Probably one of biggest challenge Netflix will face here in the Philippines is to convince many people to turn from downloading pirated movies to streaming it at a minimal cost. The challenge is even compounded by the issue of slow internet connection.

Netflix follows the move of Spotify and Apple Music, american media streaming services that made its way into the country. Like Netflix, both are competing against piracy and file sharing practices many Filipinos have been used to.

Local Competitor - iFlix and HOOQ

Netflix will compete with iFlix and HOOQ, local versions of Netflix which was heavily advertised in the past year. With Netflix on board, it will post a huge challenge to iFlix and HOOQ.

Yugatech.com did a great job of putting up a comparison chart of the three streaming services. Kindly check here: Comparison: Netflix vs iflix vs HOOQ
