Alternatives to Netflix in Mexico if you don’t want to pay its new price | Digital Trends Spanish

Both new users and those who are already subscribed will have to pay the increase that the video platform in streaming presented this November in Mexico, unless they opt for one of the best alternatives to Netflix or permanently cancel the service from Los Gatos, California.

Options are not necessary, from the attractive HBO Max to the newcomer Star Plus. They also highlight those proposals that do not require a monthly or annual payment to access endless content; their business model is in the display of advertisements.

  • Basic: stay in the 139 pesos per month
  • Standard: from 196 to 219 pesos per month
  • Premium: from 266 to 299 pesos per month
