The company also added a cheaper subscription package with ads. In Vietnam, users can watch Netflix with a free account on Android with certain limitations (for example, not the highest resolution, no exclusive movies…). Currently, the price of a one-month Netflix subscription in Vietnam is VND 108,000 (reduced from VND 180,000 in early 2023).
