Vodafone, over the weekend, announced an all-new Netflix subscription benefit for its RED postpaid customers in India. The company has revealed that postpaid subscribers on Vodafone RED plans of Rs. 1,299 or higher value are eligible to get a free up to one-year Netflix subscription as a free gift. For those unaware, Vodafone offers RED postpaid plans starting as low as Rs. 499.
The Vodafone website confirms that eligible RED postpaid customers can avail the free Netflix subscription for up to one year by visiting the official Vodafone India online store or can also do so by texting 'Netflix' to 199 from an eligible RED postpaid number. Depending on the value of the plan, users will get Rs. 500 per month credited to their Netflix account.
Vodafone's Rs. 1,299 RED postpaid plan comes with unlimited calls on home network as well as on roaming (i.e. free outgoing calls on roaming). It also comes with 100 text messages, and 20GB of bundled 4G/ 3G data for 4G smartphone users. Additionally, the company is offering a gift of 30GB free data to RED 1299 Unlimited plan subscribers. Those that avail of the Netflix offer will get a free two-months subscription, with Rs. 500 per month credited to your Netflix account.

The RED 1999 Unlimited and RED 2999 Unlimited plans are also eligible, and offer similar benefits to the RED 1699 plan but offer additional 4G data for consumers. Unfortunately, there's no word until when the new Netflix subscription is available to RED postpaid customers.

The insurance cover covered various scenarios such as theft cover, claimed by company to be the only service that offered it, apart from basic handset damage cover.
