Atria Convergence Technologies or ACT Fibernet announced its partnership with popular streaming service Netflix earlier this year. As part of this partnership, ACT Fibernet customers choosing an Entertainment broadband plan can avail up to Rs 500 cashback on Netflix subscription while paying through ACT Fibernet’s monthly bill. The Internet Service Provider (ISP) has made some changes to the Netflix Entertainment plans and has eventually reduced the cashback amount offered on Netflix subscription. For example, ACT Fibernet’s non-gigabit plans used to provide a maximum cashback of Rs 350, but now, the same plans are coming with a discount of just Rs 200 on Netflix subscription. ACT Fibernet is currently offering the Netflix Entertainment plans in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Delhi cities.
ACT Fibernet Makes Changes to Netflix Entertainment Plans
ACT Fibernet established a partnership with Netflix earlier this year to offer up to Rs 500 cashback on Netflix subscription via its rental. For example, if a customer chooses the 1 Gbps ACT Giga broadband plan, then he/she can get Rs 500 cashback on monthly Netflix subscription. If the person chooses Rs 500 Netflix Basic plan, then the overall charges will be waived off thanks to this offer.
The ISP has now made changes to the overall offer and it reduced the discount offered on other broadband plans except ACT Giga. For example, in Hyderabad city, the A-Max 1050 plan used to provide a cashback of Rs 200 (on six months subscription) and Rs 300 (on 12 months subscription). But after the latest revision, the Netflix subscription cashback amount has been reduced to just Rs 100, irrespective of the subscription period. Even the Rs 1,299 broadband plan comes with just Rs 100 cashback on Netflix subscription. The Rs 1,999 broadband plan in Hyderabad comes with Rs 200 Netflix cashback offer.
The same case applies to Bengaluru, Chennai and Delhi cities as well. In Delhi city, ACT Fibernet has just two Netflix Entertainment plans- ACT Platinum Promo and ACT Diamond, which come with Rs 100 and Rs 350 Netflix cashback offer respectively.
In Bengaluru, ACT Fibernet’s cashback on Netflix plans starts at Rs 50. ACT Fibernet plans which are part of Netflix Entertainment package are ACT Blace (Rs 50 Netflix cashback), ACT Storm (Rs 50), ACT Lightning (Rs 100), ACT Incredible (Rs 150) and ACT Giga (Rs 500). Thankfully, ACT Fibernet did not revise the cashback amount offered on ACT Giga plans though. Besides Delhi, ACT Fibernet is providing 1 Gbps ACT Giga plan in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai cities.
Furthermore, ACT Fibernet even removed the extra data offer on Netflix Entertainment plans which it used to offer in the past.
