We know Korean dramas or K-dramas are part of a mom’s self-care prescription — when you’ve had a full day of running the household and caring for the kids, watching your favorite series is the best way to unwind and de-stress. Luckily, watching K-dramas is easier than ever with a Netflix Philippines subscription.
How much does a Netflix Philippines subscription cost?
If you’re new to Netflix, you can sign up using your email address and get a 30-day trial for free. Afterward, you can choose from 4 subscription packages: their mobile-only plan at Php149, their basic plan for Php369, their standard plan at Php459 (2 users), and their premium plan at Php549.
The cheapest option is their mobile-only plan where a user can watch on her mobile phone and tablet. But if your family is big on streaming, you can share one email address and avail the premium plan, where 4 users can watch shows and movies at the same time, using their laptops, TV, mobile phones, and tablets. You can also watch in Ultra HD (high definition) and feel like you’re in a movie theater!
What can I watch on Netflix?
Of course, K-dramas aren’t the only shows you can watch on Netflix. According to Finder.com, there are over 1,500 TV shows and more than 3,300 movies on the app. This includes different genres like horror, comedy, action & adventure, crime documentaries, and more, plus anime, and kid-friendly shows for the little ones. Recently, a surge of Filipino movies and TV shows have also started streaming on the platform.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
