Mubi is a streaming service that is known for its sparse-but-meaningful catalog of films, has become available in India, reports Manish Singh for Techcrunch.
The London-headquartered firm is offering a three-month subscription in India at Rs 199 ($2.8), after which it would charge $7 a month or $67 a year (this way, the monthly cost works out to about $5.5). This is substantially lower than the £9.99 monthly subscription fee it charges to subscribers in the U.K., and the $10.99 it charges in the U.S.
I first learned about Mubi through a comment on some random Reddit thread. Mubi has made a name for itself by curating a small collection of critically acclaimed films in its catalog — a catalog that refreshes every few weeks.
I’ve been wanting to try out Mubi for a while now, but never really pushed the lever owing to its high subscription price. Now that it has arrived in India with a low entry barrier (and it also has a nice app for Apple TV), I might just take the plunge.
