Popular streaming service Netflix will now bill Nigerians in Naira instead of Dollars. This was confirmed in a mail I received yesterday.
The mail reads – “We are writing to let you know that as of Tuesday, January 21st 2020 we will be switching to billing all members in Nigeria in Nigerian naira. This change is part of our ongoing work to improve Netflix for our members in Nigeria.”
If your subscription has been renewed already for February, the Naira billing will take effect from March.

You can for your Netflix subscription in Nigeria with your Visa and Mastercard. Your card must have been activated for online transactions by your bank. You can also pay with your PayPal account.
If you cannot afford the monthly subscription, you can ask your friend on the Standard or Premium plan to share their passwords with you. That’s what some people do anyway!
