While Netflix has hiked prices in New Zealand, Netherlands as well as Spain, the video streaming platform has reduced prices in Pakistan. Standard and Premium price plans have seen a cut of Rs 400.

The Standard plan now costs Rs 800 per month whereas the Premium plan is now priced at Rs 1,100. The plans were earlier, Rs 1500 and Rs 1200 respectively. The move is motivated by Netflix's desire to increase subscribers in the region.
