It would be surprising if you aren’t a Netflix subscriber yet. However, if you’re just getting started with the paid plans—here’s a detailed guide on how to pay for all available Netflix plans in Kenya.
How to Pay for Netflix Using Your Card
You may be wondering if you can pay for your Netflix subscription using PayPal or M-PESA. Unfortunately at the moment, there’s no option to pay for your Netflix subscription using either PayPal or M-PESA in Kenya.
However, Netflix allows you to make your monthly subscription using your ATM/debit or credit card—Visa and Mastercard. Netflix also accepts virtual cards in select markets and regions.
Here is how to use your credit or debit card to pay for your subscription:
- Log in to your Netflix account on your browser (phone or computer).
- Select your preferred subscription plan and then click Next.
- Enter your credit or debit card details
- Confirm your details and start the Paid Membership.
And you’re good to go watch your favourite video content. Ensure that you have a reliable internet connection to enjoy Netflix without any interruptions.
If you encounter challenges with the above payment method, you can try using a different card or consult with your bank or card issuer to ensure that your card supports online transactions.

Netflix Subscription Plans and Prices in Kenya
Netflix offers different subscription plans to meet its diverse customers’ needs.
Netflix Free Plan
Netflix offers a Free Plan for anyone in Kenya. This plan is only available on Android phones and you can browse through the platform free of charge and without any advertisements.
The free plan gives you access to limited TV shows and movies, and mobile games. The maximum video resolution on this plan is 480p—but won’t be easily noticeable on a mobile screen.
Also, you can download episodes or movies for offline viewing on the free plan.
It is worth noting that the free Netflix plan doesn’t work on Android tablets—it only works on standard-size smartphones.
Netflix Paid Packages in Kenya
You can upgrade from the free Netflix plan to paid plan to access the full Netflix catalog and your favourite TV shows, movies, and other amazing programs.
The paid plans are based on different factors such as video quality, video resolution, and the number of devices you can use concurrently. The various subscription plans are listed in the table below:
|Price||Ksh. 300||Ksh. 700||Ksh. 1,100||Ksh. 1,750|
|Gadget||Phone and Tablet||Phone, Tablet, PC, and TV||Phone, Tablet, PC, and TV||Phone, Tablet, PC, and TV|
It is worth noting that the availability of a video resolution (HD, Full HD, Ultra HD, and HDR) is subject to your internet connectivity and device capabilities. Not all content is available in all resolutions.
Since its 2016 launch in Kenya, the video streaming platform has seen radical growth in the number of subscribers. This can be attributed to increased connectivity to fast and reliable internet.
With Netflix, customers have the freedom to select their preferred plans according to their needs, change their plans, or even cancel their plans whenever they want.
This flexibility and convenience are what many streaming services lack. This sets Netflix as the best online video streaming service we have at the moment.
