You’ve probably heard of Netflix. Or probably you haven’t. Well, either way, it’s a subscription-based service which offers online streaming of a library of films and television programs— sort of a modern-day rendition of cable TV. In the form of an app, Netflix is available on all forms of modern media—TV, laptop, and mobile. Have you heard about shows like ‘Stranger Things’, ‘House of Cards’, and ‘Black Mirror’, or ‘Sacred Games’ and ‘Selection Day’, but never saw them on TV? Because they’re on Netflix. The global popular culture trend is going digital and Netflix is the number one medium to catch up with the entertainment world. It has a total of 125 million hours of content. From TV shows to documentaries to movies—they’ve got you covered.
In this article we explore how we can access the library of Netflix’s digital content from Nepal.
First thing to understand: Netflix is available in Nepal. It even has a specially curated library for Nepal so you’ll see new and old Bollywood flicks as recommendations. And yes, you don’t need to install fishy VPNs to access it. Go to Play Store/App Store, search for the app, and download it (or scan the QR code given in this article, above).
Second step is having an account. Netflix is a paid streaming service and as such, you will need an international debit card, PayPal account or a credit card. However, for a month, you get to try the service for free. You can cancel your plan before your free month ends and you will not be charged a paisa.
If you don’t have an International card, you can also find Netflix coupons from local third party dealers who will help you pay your fees with a commission. You can find these companies all over Facebook.
After filling in your card details, lastly, fill in your personal information and Viola! But before you go using #NetflixAndChill without knowing the context, give it a quick Google search.
So cozy yourself up this weekend and stream away!
