This is part of the company's global expansion to more than 130 new countries. The service was launched during a keynote by Co-founder and Chief Executive Reed Hastings at CES 2016 at Las Vegas yesterday night.
"Today you are witnessing the birth of a new global Internet TV network. With this launch, consumers around the world, from Singapore to St Petersburg, from San Francisco to Sao Paulo, will be able to enjoy TV shows and movies more waiting," Hastings said.
With the help of the Internet, Netflix is putting power in consumers' hands to watch content whenever, wherever and on whatever device, he added.
It has over 70 million members in over 190 countries watching more than 125 million hours of content. In India, the service will be available under three monthly packs -Basic (Rs 500), Standard (Rs 650) and Premium (Rs 800). Besides, users will get a month of free trial.
In India, the service will compete with the likes of Hungama, HOOQ, Star's Hotstar and Singapore-based Spuul, among others. While the on-demand video service market in India is still in its nascent stages, industry watchers are confident of manifold growth in the segment in the coming years.
