Since 2007, the emergence of Netflix has triggered a race against time, putting content on every possible screen, providing the user with a wide range of streaming services. Calculator in hand, we look at how much each subscription plan available in the formal market costs.
Given a wide range of applications and streaming services, most offer a free trial ranging from a week to a month. In this way, you can know the catalog offered and make a decision according to the preferences of each user, but not only the quality of the catalog is important: you should also pay attention to the stability of the service and your experience as a user.
The best known and the widest catalog is Netflix. The big N has three membership options according to the HD quality available and the number of screens that can be viewed simultaneously, so you can pay from $ 4,590 with the basic plan to $ 7,390 for the premium plan. In this option, up to four screens can use the service, so the unit value would be $ 1,848 per month, just over two transantiago trips at peak times.
