Netflix announces a discount for its plans in certain countries to combat the cancellation of subscriptions.
Netflix is going through one of the most complicated situations in its entire history since, now that it has changed its account sharing policies, thousands of users have threatened to cancel their subscriptions to the streaming servicein all countries where this new measure has been imposed. Aware of what is coming, the company has announced a discount on the cost of its plan, but with certain limitations.
According to what the Xataka Móvil portal indicates , the firm has begun to distribute an email to certain users in some Latin American countries since February 13. In it, the price reduction in the various Netflix plans is mentioned as a new strategy to maintain its audience now that a massive cancellation of subscriptions has been threatened.
The offer -with a trick- of Netflix
Because Latin America was the first region in which the company began testing its new shared account policy, Netflix has decided to start its new batch of offers for its Basic, Standard and Premium plans in certain countries in this part of the world. “The best entertainment now has a lower monthly price ,” this statement is titled.
It is important to mention that the discounts have not been the same for all the countries in which they have been applied, so below we mention what the Netflix prices will be depending on the territory.
Bolivia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Paraguay
- Basic: $3.99 (was $7.99)
- Standard: $5.99 (was $10.99)
- Premium: $7.99 (was $13.99)
El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Ecuador and Guatemala
- Basic: $4.99 (was $7.99)

- Basic: $4.99 (was $8.99)

In the case of Bolivia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Paraguay, users have benefited from up to 50% discount on the Basic plan and 40% on the Standard and Premium plans . At the moment, Netflix has not ruled on the arrival of these discounts to other countries both in Latin America and in other regions of the world.
Netflix gets down to business
The reception of Netflix ‘s new shared account policies has been very hard since in certain territories such as Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala , users will have to pay more money if they want to lend their respective accounts to friends or relatives who do not live in the same house. The possibility that more subscriptions will be canceled during this period due to the company’s measure is quite probable.
Netflix , which has dominated the market for video- on-demand streaming services for many years , has begun to see how its supremacy is threatened by proposals from other companies with platforms such as HBO Max, Prime Video, Disney+ and SkyShowtime , each with their own exclusive content and
