Yesterday, we got to know that Tata Sky finally changed its name to Tata Play. Besides, there were also talks of subscribers being able to watch Netflix on Tata Play. These talks surely do not seem like a myth now as, it is indeed true. Netflix has officially confirmed and announced this collaboration.
According to the OTT streaming platform, from January 27, 2022, which is today, Tata Play users will be able to watch Netflix on their TVs. However, there is a teeny weeny bit of a catch there. Not everyone can make use of the brand new merger. So, how exactly can you watch Netflix on Tata Play? Let’s find out.
Neflix on Tata Play – How to Watch?
Tata Play DTH service users will be getting Netflix on their TVs via purchasing 90 bundles. However, the pricing of these bundles are currently under wraps. Moreover, they would require a membership of the Tata Play+ service. Then, they can go on to purchase the Tata Play Netflix Combo plan.
Furthermore, with this plan, Tata Play DTH subscribers get access to Netflix, Binge and TV Channels, all together. An important thing to note here is that those users who are using the Tata Play services via a regular set top box will not be able to access the new content.
In order to do so, they would require the Tata Play Binge+ Smart Set Top Box. This special set top box allows users to directly access Netflix and other OTT platform services. Users can do so from the Home Screen and remote itself. Netflix on Tata Play can be streamed by selecting from the OTT service’s Basic, Standard and Premium plans. This can be done via the Tata Play Netflix Combo packs. Moreover, subscribers will be able to pay for the brand new service via Tata Play Wallet.
Vice President for Business Development in APAC at Netflix says that, “Our partnership with Tata Play will make it easier for customers to subscribe to Netflix and enjoy high-quality video streaming around India. We look forward to entertaining more Indian entertainment fans with a wide variety of high-quality Netflix shows.”
Tata Play Binge Price in India
Here comes in the question of the hour. How much does it exactly cost for you to get the Tata Play Binge+ service in India? Tata Play Binge price in India is set at Rs. 299 on a monthly basis. This will offer users with access to the OTT services.
With this plan, users get access to several OTT services like Disney+ Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video, Eros Now, and Zee5. Now, Netflix on Tata Play is the latest addition to the list of OTT services as well. Talking about the second requirement, that is the Tata Play Binge+ Smart Set Top Box, it costs Rs. 2,499 in India. Another thing to note is that it does not include the monthly Tata Play Binge payment.
