Earlier in the year we learned that Telefonica was involved in an ambitious project with Netflix, of which little was known at the time. Now Movistar and Netflix Companies have confirmed that collaboration agreement that, at the user level, means that you can make use of the app without spending data from your telephone bill.
We had already seen how Yoigo planted his unlimited data rate to, among other things, consume Netflix content without concern for excessive data consumption. Poro after Vodafone presented Super Pass , its offer so that the use of certain applications, among which is the video streaming app, does not represent an increase in the monthly invoice. Now it is confirmed that Movistar and Netflix initiate an international alliance in which, among other things, mobile data will not be consumed when using the app.
Netflix and Movistar
Netflix and Movistar have announced a global agreement to integrate Netflix services into Telefónica’s video and TV platforms in these two regions. Of course this agreement also affects the field of mobile telephony. As noted by Reed Hastings, co-founder and CEO of Netflix. ”
“Millions of customers will enjoy this agreement in the coming years, customers who can easily access their favorite Netflix series and movies through the Telefónica platforms. The possibility of accessing Netflix content through the different Telefónica video and television channels will allow users to enjoy all their favorite content in one place “.
In Spain we will have to wait a bit to enjoy this partnership, because the first launches will be made in Latin America in the coming weeks, while in Spain until the end of this year we can not agree to the agreement between both companies. All the details of agreement between Netflix and Telefónica the ADSLZone colleagues tell you.
Enjoy Netflix without spending data
Of course the key point of this alliance between Movistar and Netflix , beyond offering the most complete content offer for its users, is that certain rates of the company will not take into account the data consumption of the video streaming app, so you could watch your favorite series and movies without finding yourself with unpleasant surprises on your bill at the end of the month. We still have to confirm in which offers the consumption of Netflix or if the door to new unlimited data rates .
