Subscription Plans to Suit Your Lifestyle at a Cost you Can Afford
Netflix prices remain comparable to the original USA cost with plans starting from 280 THB for standard definition playback on a single device.
If you want to stream TV shows to more than one device at the same time or to enjoy high definition playback then you should consider one of the slightly more expensive packages.
Watch Netflix on all of your Devices
One of the best things about streaming is that you’re able to watch your content across multiple types of devices. Both Android and Apple have apps available for viewing Netflix on their phones and tablets. Similarly Microsoft also serves a Netflix app for use on Windows computers.
There are several options available to you if you want to watch Netflix on a television. If you have a smart TV then there’s likely to be an app already installed for Netflix.
For regular televisions you can always connect a laptop, computer or even a smartphone or tablet with the correct conversion cable.
Failing that you can use an Apple TV box or one of the many Android TV boxes that are hitting the market such as the Minix Neo X8H Plus with an air remote.
What’s Not to Like with Netflix
Overall we’re impressed with Netflix as a streaming service but there are a couple of things that may let some people down.
Firstly, you’re not going to get all of the latest TV shows around. Many are licensed exclusively to other networks, like ‘Game of Thrones’, meaning that they’re not going to end up on Netflix for quite some time, if ever.
As concerns the new Netflix for Thailand you’ll notice a lack of local titles.
Unfortunately there is limited Thai-language media available at the moment but this is hoped to change in the future as more content is added. There is no option to display even the website in Thai (apart from using Google Translate) and the same is true of the various Netflix apps.
You’ll also notice that it’s not possible to display Thai subtitles either which is likely to be more of a disappointment for many people.
Hopefully we’ll see improvements in these areas in the not too distant future as the technology progresses.
