Netflix discontinues free plan for Kenyan subscribers

Streaming service provider Netflix is ending its free plan in Kenya next month, which will affect thousands of subscribers who have been enjoying complimentary access.

It has informed users that when the free service ends, their memberships will be automatically canceled, and they will need to upgrade to one of the paid plans.

“On November 1, 2023, the Free Plan will no longer be available, and your membership will end. If you want to cancel, no action is required. Your membership will be automatically canceled when the free plan ends,” reads the email sent to subscribers.

“If you want to keep watching, upgrade to one of our paid plans. Starting from as low as Ksh200 ($1.35) per month, you can unlock all shows and movies, more features and the option to watch on your phone, TV or laptop.”

The free plan, introduced to the Kenyan market, was seen as an innovative step by Netflix, making Kenya the first country globally to have access to such a feature.
