To recall, the company introduced the spatial audio feature in July 2021 with select titles. Now it is available on more than 700 popular movies and TV shows, including Stranger Things, The Watcher, Wednesday, and Knives Out: Glass Onion. The company also said to add spatial audio to popular new titles as they are released, including You, Your Place or Mine, Luther: The Fallen Sun, and Tour de France.

“Netflix spatial audio brings an immersive, cinematic sound experience on any device with no additional equipment required,” the company said in a blog post. Spatial audio is automatically enabled when watching a compatible title using standard or stereo audio. To find content with spatial audio, users can search for “Spatial Audio” in the search bar on Netflix or check for the spatial audio icon next to the title description.

Netflix has increased the number of download devices from four to six for premium subscribers. Now premium users can download movies and TV shows on six supported devices at a time. The streaming service said it has learned through research that its users would like the option to download movies and TV shows to watch offline on more devices, especially when they travel and switch between devices.

Netflix premium plan is priced at Rs. 649 per month and offers streaming at 4K resolution on up to four devices simultaneously. It also supports HDR, Dolby Atmos, and downloads on six supported devices.

Q: So if it is going to be about original content, it is also then going to be linked I would imagine to more flexibility when it comes to pricing plans because that is what we are seeing happen at least in markets like India. So are you going to be forced to maybe be much more competitive on the pricing side as well?

A: Netflix is only Rs 500 a month here which is consistent with our global pricing.

Q: Amazon is that much for a year, I believe.

A: Yes, but they do not have our shows. They have some content and then there is lots of stuff on YouTube for free. So think of it as, there is free content, there is cheap content and then what we try to do is have great content, have very unique shows with very special things and to make it easy to subscribe and join.
