Yes you heard it right.. Now you can pay your membership fee in PKR if you are a Pakistani Netflix user.  This new change has already been implied from 27th August 2018 onwards.

Netflix debuted in 1997, which means it has now been around for two entire decades. By this point, most other companies would’ve sold out and injected advertising into every nook and cranny they could find.Netflix is also offering various Pakistani dramas, movies and shows. Some of the famous dramas that you can watch on Netflix are:

  • Humsafar
  • Shehr-e-Zaat
  • Sadqay Tumharay

Famous Pakistani movies like Janan, Balu Mahi, Ho Man Jahan, Rangreza can also be found on Netflix directory. Moreover Netflix offers a variety of different types of movies you can choose from all kind of genres. From Disney movies to your favorite TV series sitcom. I used to think Netflix is overrated but truthfully it’s one of the best tools.
