Paying mobile bills, OTT subscription fees, and managing other expenses can get taxing. It also digs a huge hole in your pocket. However, Airtel subscribers need not bother about buying OTT subscriptions separately anymore, as Netflix will now come bundled with some of Airtel’s postpaid plans. So, basically, Airtel postpaid members can now enjoy the entire Netflix catalog at no extra cost.
The company announced that Netflix now comes with two Airtel Postpaid Family Plans – Rs 1199 and Rs 1599. Airtel postpaid users can upgrade to the Rs 1199 plan, get monthly access to Netflix’s Basic plan and those with a Rs 1599 plan get monthly access to Netflix’s Standard plan.

It comes with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls. The plan also provides free subscription to Disney+ Hotstar, Airtel Xtreme, free add-on connection with unlimited calls and handset protection.
