On Netflix, members can set up to five profiles in each account, and each profile can have its own language setting. Netflix members outside India will also have the option to switch their user interface to Hindi.


“Delivering a great Netflix experience is as important to us as creating great content. We believe the new user interface will make Netflix even more accessible and better suit members who prefer Hindi,” said Netflix India VP-Content Monika Shergill in a statement.

Indian films include hits like Sacred Games, Bulbbul, Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai and Mighty Little Bheem.
