As of November 1st, 2023, Netflix no longer offers the free mobile plan for viewers in Kenya. However, you can take advantage of the reduced subscription charges for all Netflix packages. To watch Netflix in Kenya, you must first sign up as a member and then download the Netflix mobile app, watch online or on smart TV. Signing up is very easy and you can set up your Netflix account in a few minutes and start enjoying your favourite TV shows.
There are no contracts with Netflix. You just sign up, subscribe to a plan, and start watching a wide range of select TV shows, movies, series, documentaries and animations. You can also download a movie to watch later while offline.
In case you are wondering how to pay for Netflix in Kenya, worry no more. You can always pay for your favourite package using the M-Pesa Global Pay, which you can set up from the comfort of your phone, hassle-free.
Unlike Showmax Kenya Packages, you cannot pay for Netflix directly with M-Pesa paybill option.
However, since Netflix only accepts Visa and Credit cards, you can use the GlobalPay service which enables M-Pesa users to generate a virtual Visa card. You can then use the card details generated to link your Netflix account to your M-Pesa wallet.
If you are new to the premium package, Netflix offers you a 30-day trial period to sample and enjoy premium content before you can commit your money.
Take note that the Netflix packages differ by the type and number of devices you can watch on. But the content across the packages is mostly the same.
