While we have seen the sign, the unthinkable has just happened: Netflix is now officially available in Malaysia. The announcement was made just moment ago at the company’s on-going keynote address at CES 2016.
Netflix’s arrival in Malaysia is part of a massive global roll out and users in Malaysia are able to enjoy the service right away, as we speak. Contents on Netflix can be enjoyed through various ways including web browser, smart TV, and game consoles as well as dedicated apps for Android, iOS and Windows.
Meanwhile, this is how the Netflix monthly fees looked like for Malaysia together with features that come together with each tier:
In general, the monthly fee for Netflix in Malaysia is rather comparable to United States which listed at USD 7.99 (about RM 35.39) for Basic, USD 9.99 (about RM 44.25) for Standard, and USD 11.99 (about RM 53.11) for Premium. In Singapore, Netflix charges SGD 11 (about RM 33.93), SGD 14 (about RM 43.18), and SGD 17 (about RM 52.44) for respective tiers per month.
In case that you are not sure if you should subscribe to Netflix right away, you can actually try for free for the first one month although you still need to enter your credit card details during registration. Just make sure that you cancel your subscription before the one month period is up.
This is certainly a great news for a lot of people out there that have been hoping for the service to be available in Malaysia. Now you no longer need to use alternative way to access Netflix anymore.
