For the early Netflix adopters out there who have enjoyed streaming movies and TV shows, you should have less than a fortnight for your free one month trial to end. It has been one hell of a ride of free video streaming although I must admit it has put a dent in my monthly data bundle. With a choice to pay either for the basic package at UGX 27,000, the standard subscription at UGX 34,000 or pay for the premium package with 4k video support at UGX 41,000, there seems to be a lot to put into consideration before you make your final choice (see more details in table below). Some of you might ultimately opt not to renew your Netflix subscription at all. Personally, am still hooked to several movies and TV shows that extending my monthly subscription is not even debatable.
|Price after free month ends (USD)||$ 7.99||$ 9.99||$ 11.99|
|Price after free month ends (UGX)||UGX 27,080||UGX 33,900||UGX 40,600|
|Ultra HD (4k)||NO||NO||YES|
|Screens you can watch on at the same time||1||2||4|
|Watch on your laptop, TV, phone and tablet||YES||YES||YES|
|Unlimited movies and TV shows||YES||YES||YES|
|Cancel any time||YES||YES||YES|
|Recommended internet speeds||1.5- 3 Mbps||5 Mbps||25 Mbps|
Well, for all those who subscribed and have enjoyed the service, you will soon or have already received a reminder email from Netflix warming you that they are about to start collecting their dues depending on the mode of payment you opted for when you registered for the Streaming service.
For those who have not sunk their feet in the deep waters should at least try , because that mobile money payment option you are waiting for will never come as soon as you think. So you are stuck with VISA, MasterCard or PayPal as the only payment options. At the end of the day what matters is the quality of the service you are getting from Netflix, your carrier’s data speeds and pricing plan. In a previous poll we conducted on this blog, 83% of the voters said they will try Netflix, so we now ask, are you renewing your Netflix subscription after your one month trial ends?
