Netflix in Promotional Pact with Korean Telco


Netflix has announced a promotional deal with LG U+ in Korea that offers up a free three-month subscription to the streaming platform for new customers of the mobile telco’s high-speed mobile data plan.

From May 4 through the end of June, new subscribers of LG U+’s unlimited high-speed mobile data plan will receive free access to Netflix for three months. LG U+ is Korea’s third-largest telco.

“After introducing the unlimited high-speed data plan, we are continuously enriching our content offering, such as the recently-launched U+ Professional Baseball and U+ Golf, so that users can maximize their joy from the plan,” said Kim Nam-soo, director of marketing for LG U+. “This promotion with Netflix further benefits customers under this plan.”

Netflix has been available in Korea since 2016 and has unveiled several originals in the country, including Busted! I know who you are, launching on May 4, YG Future Strategy Office, Kingdom and a new stand-up comedy special from Yoo Byung Jae.
