Jio introduced a range of new plans last month for its Fiber broadband service which gave users access to a bunch of OTT app services like Netflix, Hotstar, Amazon Prime, etc. While the inclusion of these services under the plans act as a purchase factor for many consumers, people tend to confuse amongst the Netflix plans which the operator is offering.
Netflix has 4 plans which are Mobile, Basic, Standard and Premium. Jio is offering the Basic Netflix plan here with its Jio Fiber Diamond Plan and this Netflix plan has its own limitations.
The Basic Netflix Plan originally costs Rs 499 per month if you purchase it directly from Netflix regardless of the Fiber service from Jio. The resolution of the Video Quality will be capped up to 480p and is not even HD. Which means you won’t be able to play HD content with this plan.
You can watch Netflix on Laptop, Mobile or your TV with this Plan but another limitation here comes into play which is, that you can play Netflix only on 1 device at a time. You can’t stream Netflix on 2 or more devices simultaneously with this plan. The phone number with which your Jio Fiber registration will be linked to will be used to make the account on Netflix and then you will be able to use the account on your laptop, TV or mobile phone, one at a time.
