Netflix, An American Entertainment company is all ready to partner with Airtel, Vodafone, and Videocon. CEO of Netflix Reed Hastings is in India now and had already announced his three partnerships in India.
With both Videocon d2h as well as Airtel services, Netflix will now be available through the set top box without the need of any smart TV. Netflix partnered with Vodafone to enable carrier billing so that both prepaid, as well as postpaid users can pay for the Netflix subscriptions as a part of their monthly bill balance.
In an Interview, Hastings said: “India is one of the most important and vibrant countries in the world, and we are delighted to be teaming up with three of its leading companies to make it much easier for consumers to enjoy Netflix.”
He also added, “In the months and years to come, we look forward to bringing our Indian member’s more compelling stories from all over the world, and ever improving the viewing experience, and incredible joy.”
The Netflix app will be integrated into the set top boxes of both Videocon d2h as well as Airtel so that viewers can tune into Netflix on their television without having to use the dongles or Smart TVs.
You need to be a Netflix subscriber and your Airtel or Videocon d2h will be having the Wi-Fi based internet connection.
