All the popular broadband players and ISPs have increasingly made their plans more attractive for the subscribers seeing the competition rise in the broadband sector. As a result, all the broadband subscribers in India are getting to enjoy benefits which they did not previously see with their broadband plans. On the other hand, India currently seems to be riding an OTT wave, with Over-the-top video streaming applications making their way to almost every phone in India. Some of the most popular additions in these include Amazon Prime Video, ZEE5, Hotstar and more. But, if there is one another OTT app which everyone wants to have access to is Netflix. The only hurdle with Netflix, however, is that it costs a lot more than what the other subscription services cost. But, luckily with the increasingly attractive broadband plans in India, there are a couple of options out there for the subscribers with which, they will be able to enjoy Netflix subscription either for free or for a massive discount.
Bharti Airtel Broadband Plans With Netflix Subscription

It is worth noting that Bharti Airtel is offering its broadband plans under the Airtel Xstream Fibre banner. The Airtel Xstream Fibre broadband plans start at Rs 799, but the plans which come with Netflix benefit start at Rs 999. This plan by Airtel offers 300GB data per month to the subscribers with up to 200 Mbps speed. As for the Netflix subscription, the subscribers will get free three months of Netflix subscription. Along with this, the customers also get a full year of Amazon Prime, ZEE5 and Airtel Xstream subscription as well, which is an added advantage for the users.
Airtel Xstream Fibre has also got plans of users which come for Rs 1,499 and Rs 3,999 respectively. These plans offer 500GB data with 300 Mbps speed and unlimited data (3.3TB) with 1 Gbps respectively. The Netflix benefit with these plans also remains the same.
