How to Get Your Own Cheap Netflix Subscription In Nigeria

Do you want easy, unlimited and unmetered access to thousands of your favorite movies and TV shows on your phone or computer, even your smart TV (If you have one)?

We’re talking about box offering shattering movies and entertaining, highly rated shows like:

  • Suits
  • Orange is the new black
  • Van Helsing
  • How I met your Mother
  • Friends
  • Doctor Strange
  • The Flash
  • Naked
  • And many many Netflix originals you can’t find elsewhere.

All that and many more movies as they’re released. Yeah, you need a Netflix subscription.

Over the years, Netflix has proven to be an irresistible force in the movie streaming industry. Services like Netflix literally killed DVD.

No stress, weird ads in case you want to download, stream anytime, no limits to the number of movies or shows you can watch in a day, just log in and watch away till you’re done for the session.

The Thing With Using Netflix In Nigeria


So, not a lot of us own Netflix accounts but you’ll be surprised to know how many Netflix subscribers we have in Nigeria if the official numbers were published.

An issue everyone of us can relate to when it comes to Netflix in Nigeria is the data to download or stream the movies.

Internet service providers aren’t making things easier at all with the crazy expensive plans available although there is a workaround it, this will be discussed later in this article.

Another thing worth mentioning is the mentality of wanting to get everything for free. Pirates and other factors like the economic condition alongside the demand have made this a norm in the country.

Why pay for it when you can download it for free right? Well, I hate to break it to you but you’re not exactly going to be able to download all of Netflix contents elsewhere, or see it all in one place or at least reach the final download button without being bashed by intrusive ads left and right.

Getting Yourself A Netflix Subscription For Cheap

With all that’s said above, To put it simply, there’s nothing quite like the Netflix experience, this is why in this article we’re going to explore your options and look for ways to get you a Netflix subscription for cheap.

Let’s dive in.

1. Start With The 30 Day Free Trial

Now that’s using Netflix totally, legally and absolutely free for 30 days.

Yep, your first month of unlimited access to a library of TV shows and movies is on Netflix, you don’t have to pay squat. Great way to start eh? Absolutely.

This is also a great way to see if Netflix is for you. During this period you can stream, download any movie, TV show or documentary you want. Wait, what? Yes, documentaries are also a thing on Netflix and you’ll find a lot of them there.

The thing with this part though is that you get to enjoy everything for free but on the 27th day Netflix starts to send you reminders that you’ll need to start paying to continue using Netflix, that was the agreement when you started the free trial.

Gain unlimited access to Netflix and if you like it, pay to continue to use it. It’s that simple.

Netflix plans start at $9.99 (₦3,591.70) and that gives you access to the whole thing, pretty cheap for some people but even that as the smallest subscription does come with a twist, that allows you to use Netflix on two different screens at the same time.

Do you know what that means? With that account, you can watch one movie on Netflix may be on your TV and keep watching another one on your phone probably in your room while others jam away with the TV. Makes sense?

If yes then that should lead us to the second point.

2. Find Friends to Share Your Netflix Subscription With

Do you already know where we’re going with this?

To make the burden of having to pay $9.99 (₦3,591.70) every month for an extra screen you might not be using all the time, why not share it with a friend that needs it and split the payment.

That alone could slash your bill by 50% and brings it down to 1795.85, Cool right, just below ₦2000. But then who wants to pay that much for Netflix, it’s reasonable but you can still further slash that 🙂

So my friend and I have been using that for a while until one day he messaged me and said others are wanting in on our Netflix account too and I want to upgrade, nothing to do on your part (He deals with the whole thing and I just pay every month. Guess how much?) You’ll just have to pay lesser, How less? Way less, he said so I nodded go ahead with joy.

Turns out the next plan? $12.99 (₦4,310.76) which allows for Netflix on 4 screens. So that means the subscription amount shared between us was four further slashed to 1077.69. Now, how cool is that.

That way, we’re using the same Netflix account and paying way less.

Caution And Conclusion

I am not sure Netflix accounts, subscriptions are meant to be used this way.

The original idea would be to be able to use your Netflix subscription on multiple screens at the same time that you own so I wouldn’t over the whole splitting thing lest your account could get taken down.
