If you would like to pay less to get your Netflix fix, you should consider moving to Latin America. According to a British study conducted in 39 countries since 2018, a subscription to the streaming platform in Brazil offers the best value. Not surprisingly, Europe is the continent where consumers pay most for their subscriptions with Switzerland being the most expensive.
According to a study launched in 2018 and updated by British company Comparitech in August 2020, Brazil is the country where a Netflix subscription is the cheapest for a standard plan at only $5.99 per month, as opposed to $18.55 dollars in Switzerland, which is the most expensive country. With a subscription at $10.62, Canada is placed 5th in the list of countries where Netflix is the best value.
In compiling this ranking, the researchers at Comparitech took into account several factors, notably the number of films and series in the libraries for each of the 39 countries concerned. They then divided the subscription prices by the number of available titles to determine the cost per title per month for both standard and premium plans, which respectively allow users to simultaneously watch content on two or four screens.
Although it has the distinction of having the largest library with a total of 6,122 titles online, that is not enough to make the homeland of Elizabeth II the country where Netflix is the best value. The setting for the series "The Crown" nonetheless placed 10th in the ranking with a subscription price of $11.85 per month, which amounts to a cost of 0.00097 dollars per available title. At the top of the ranking, the service in Brazil provides access to 4,286 titles at a price of 0.00070 dollars. Placed second, South Africa has titles at 0.00075 dollars, while India, in third position, offers titles at 0.00079 dollars. Placed last, Switzerland charges subscribers $18.55 per month for access to 4326 titles, which amounts to a rate of 0.00214 dollars.
Europe has the most expensive Netflix subscriptions in the world, with no less than 17 countries at the top of the Comparitech list of countries where the service is most expensive. .
