Video streaming giant Netflix has partnered with Internet service provider Hathway at India to provide users access to its content via the latter’s set-top box.
The Hathway set-top box may include a remote which has a dedicated Netflix button allowing users get the streaming service directly and watch TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages. Notably, Hathway subscribers will have the ability to pay for their Netflix subscription with their Hathway bill itself, and people who do so will get the set-top box at no cost.
The Hathway set-top box is going to probably be found at an introductory cost of Rs. 2,999. As previously mentioned, all new and existing Hathway broadband readers, who have a subscription to Netflix and cover through their Hathway invoice to their Netflix subscription, will obtain this box at no cost, the company advised in a discharge. Netflix, that boasts of 130 million memberships in over 190 nations, has recently been partnering with Indian telcos. Last month, it succeeds with Airtel to provide free three months of Netflix subscription with select postpaid and broadband plans. Even Vodafone postpaid users may avail free Netflix subscription on select plans, and Netflix has partnered with Hathway Broadband.
Rajan Gupta, MD, Hathway said in a statement,”In this wise and electronic age, customers are taking a look at leading Internet entertainment services like Netflix to access high quality, well-produced amusement. The soon to be launched Hathway set-top box will create watching streaming videos on big displays an incredible experience. The Hathway set-top box will be bundled with our high-speed, unlimited fibre-to-home monthly plans.”
The Hathway set-top box will allow Hathway’s clients to use the Netflix button on their remote controls to seamlessly access and enjoy the best entertainment at high rates.”
