How to get Netflix for cheaper in Malaysia
Getting the best deal on Netflix plan in Malaysia requires a little cooperation, but absolutely worth it. This way, you can enjoy Netflix Premium for just RM11 per month. Netflix Premium is the best plan as it comes with the best video quality and can be watched on any device.
The trick is simple: Share the 5 accounts given under Netflix Premium between 5 people.
To do this ‘hack’, one person must act as the main account holder and ‘recruit’ the other four people (usually friends, but strangers work as well). The main account holder will subscribe to Netflix Premium, assign accounts to the other four and make the monthly payment to Netflix.
Tip for the main account holder: don’t waste time chasing everyone for monthly payments. Instead, collect the money upfront. Currently, I pay the main account holder RM66 every 6 months.
Is Netflix Mobile Plan worth it?
If you prefer or don’t mind watching all your Netflix shows on mobile, then Netflix Mobile plan is the next best option. At RM17 per month, this is the second cheapest option to subscribe to Netflix in Malaysia.
One consideration is mobile data. Unless you get your data for free, it is worth looking around for the best deals for mobile data for video streaming.
Deals change all the time – so check your telco providers. For Yoodo users, you can purchase 20GB of data for RM7 under Boost Add-ons. If you want to switch, use my Yoodo referral code to get bonus data.
Is Netflix Basic Good
IMHO, Netflix Basic is NOT worth it. You’re paying RM35 per month but getting the same video quality in Netflix Mobile (480p) – the only difference is you can watch it on more devices (bigger screens).
If you want to watch Netflix on more screens, you’re better off doing the Netflix Premium hack above. RM11 per month is as cheap as it gets.
