Netflix Partners With Airtel, Videocon, and Vodafone for better services

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings is visiting India right now and has announced three major partnerships in the country. With both Airtel and Videocon d2h Direct to Home (DTH) services, Netflix is now going to be available through the set-top box, without the need of a smart TV or another dongle like Chromecast and Apple TV. Netflix has also partnered with Vodafone to enable carrier billing so both postpaid and prepaid customers can pay for their Netflix subscriptions as a part of their monthly bill/ prepaid balance.

“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,” said Hastings. “In the months and years to come, we look forward to bringing our Indian members more compelling stories from all over the world, and ever-improving viewing experience, and incredible joy.”
