Netflix Comes to Pakistan!
Hold your breath and pause for a second people……..NETFLIX HAS FINALLY COME TO PAKISTAN! Yes, you read that right.
The streaming pioneer and giant recently announced plans to extend its services to Pakistan. Not to harsh the mellow but should we really be excited about the arrival of Netflix? Let’s think about this.
We’ve already got search engines via which we can download and read or watch absolutely anything that we want to. This applies to movies, Ebooks, PDFs, articles and other material of the sort.
Also, we have access to a plethora of streaming websites. Sure, these sites aren’t as popular nor as famous as Netflix but they work pretty well. Plus, you don’t have to pay for availing their streaming services.
On the other hand, you would have to pay a minimum of PKR 700 or so, to avail the streaming giant’s services. That doesn’t sound like much but do you think many would want to pay that amount when they’ve got other streaming websites available to them? And when they need not pay a single rupee for availing those services? Not really!
Alright, what about the good points though? You will find a ton of movies, documentaries, shows and series on the website, some of which are not available on other sites. You can watch any show, anytime, anywhere, seeing as how the king of streaming has extended its services to devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and other devices of the sort- something that other websites do not offer. This is a solution we desperately needed considering the power problems and situation in Pakistan!
So, it’s a tough call really and while some have welcomed the arrival of Netflix to Pakistan, others are a little uncertain about it.
