What Subscriptions do Netflix Offer?
Netflix offers three different subscriptions to meet the needs of its customers.
The three packages come at different prices and offer a more or less complete service that is relevant to the subscription chosen.
However, regardless of your subscription, you have access to the same number of films and series, on all your devices (computer, smartphone, tablet, smart TV, game console, etc.) and you can download programs to watch them in offline mode when you have no internet connection.
These subscription packages are:
- Netflix Basic,
- Netflix Standard, and
- Netflix Premium
Netflix Basic Plan
The Netflix Basic subscription is the lowest plan at €7.99, $8.99 or 2,900 Nigerian Naira per month.
It provides access to thousands of movies and series as well as Netflix exclusives.
The programs are accessible on a single screen and are in standard image quality, i.e, 720 x 576 pixels. The recommended internet speed is 0.8Mbits/s.
It is the ideal plan for individuals or couples who do not need to share their screen or their profile.
Netflix Standard Plan
The Netflix Standard subscription costs €11.99, $13.99 or 3,600 Nigerian Naira per month.
By subscribing to this offer, you can watch films and series on two screens simultaneously.
You also benefit from high-definition, that is to say an image quality of 1280 x 720 pixels. The recommended speed to take full advantage of this variant is 5Mbits/s.
This subscription is particularly recommended for small families or for a shared apartment of two people, for example.
You can watch two different programs, each on your screen.
Netflix Premium Plan
The price of the Netflix Premium subscription is apparently a little higher, costing €15.99, $17.99 or 4,400 Nigerian Naira per month and gives you access to the streaming service for up to four screens simultaneously .
The programs are available in ultra-high definition, that is, in image quality of 3840 x 2160 pixels, on compatible equipment.
As for internet speed, it is advisable to have a minimum speed of 25Mbits/s to enjoy uninterrupted and seamless Ultra HD (Ultra-High Definition).
The Premium plan is recommended for large families or groups of friends who want to take advantage of their subscription without disturbing themselves.
If you are in a country like Nigeria, Netflix offers a fourth subscription plan called Netflix Mobile. At a cost of only ₦1,200 only, you are able to watch unlimited movies and TV shows.
It allows you to stream movies on any mobile device or tablet, but with a limit of only one screen at a time. However, unlike the basic, you can’t watch on your television or laptop while HD and Ultra HD is not available.
The Mobile Plan is recommended for the average smartphone user, who has no need for a bigger screen, or one who is always on the go, but never wants to miss the newest hits.

How to Create A Netflix Account and Subscribe to Netflix?
Netflix is accessible by downloading the application from the Apple Store, the Google Play Store, or by connecting to the platform’s website. It is also offered by various Internet access providers such as Orange, Free, SFR, Bouygues Telecom, etc., directly from the TV decoder interface.
The Netflix interface is particularly well thought out, as it only takes a few minutes to purchase a subscription before you can access thousands of hours of programming. We will now explain in details the procedure to you:
1. Create a Netflix account
Creating a Netflix account is as straightforward as straight can be. Just select “Netflix” on your television menu or on the “Start your free trial” box if you use the website or mobile application.
Follow this up by inputing and validating your email address.
2. Choose a Netflix Subscription
You have the choice between three subscriptions: the Basic plan, the Standard plan and the Premium plan. Select the one that suits you and click “Continue”.
It is possible to change the subscription plan at any time from your account, according to your preference.
3. Choose a Payment Method
When creating your account, you must enter a payment method which will be used to set up the monthly debit.
You have the choice of your payment method between:
- A credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express),
- A Netflix gift card (you can give a Netflix card to your friends or family so that they too can enjoy the VOD, video on demand service),
- A prepaid card, or
- Via the Paypal service.
Once you have chosen the payment method and filled in the various fields requested, click on “Activate my subscription”.
4. Check Your Personal Data
5. Personalize Your Netflix Subscription
After activating your account, you will be able to personalize your subscription. First, a “Do you want to watch Netflix on other screens?” window will appear.
Netflix are asking if you want to use the streaming platform from your computer or from a connected TV, tablet, smartphone or even from a TV console or Apple TV.
Check the boxes that interest you and you will be able to watch Netflix on your chosen media. If you are not sure of your choices, no problem, leave the fields blank. You can come back to this page later. Click on “Next” to go to the subsequent step.
You will now be asked to create different user accounts. Netflix gives you the option of determining up to 5 profiles, with each user capable of personalising their profile.
If you are more than one using the same Netflix account, it is recommended that you create several profiles so that each of them is personalized according to the person who has access to it. You can create up to 5 different profiles.
Personalization helps Netflix bring you new content based on your preferences. Netflix then asks each user to choose at least three titles from a series of movies or series that you have already seen or want to watch. This will allow Netflix to give you content suggestions.
Subsequently, the system will analyse the programs you have watched to make new proposals adapted to your tastes. That’s it, you can take full advantage of your Netflix subscription.
To cancel your Netflix subscription, read this detailed guide.
