I want to join Paravi, but how much is the monthly fee?
Paravi, a video delivery service that allows you to watch as much unlimited content as you want for 1,017 yen per month (Paravi Basic Plan), ended its 2-week free trial offer for new registrations on June 20, 2022.
However, we believe that there are many people who would like to watch films that are only available on Paravi.
Therefore, we will explain Paravi's price plans and precautions in detail in this article. Please refer to it.
What is Paravi?
Paravi's catchphrase, "We don't want to be outdone only by dramas. Paravi is a video streaming service that allows you to enjoy a rich lineup of popular dramas and variety shows from TBS, TV Tokyo, and WOWOW anytime, anywhere.
Paravi's greatest feature is its strength in dramas, and it also offers download playback in offline environments and the ability to create multiple profiles.
With Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Apple TV, or a TV with built-in Paravi, you can easily watch your favorite dramas on the big screen of your TV. In addition, you can enjoy the content without advertisements, and if you love dramas and variety shows, you should definitely subscribe.
While expanding its lineup, the company has recently focused on music programs, live streaming, and more. If you like popular Korean songs, we highly recommend using this service.
Paravi is also focusing on economic news and reporting programs. In addition to the popular "Paravi Business: Economy in 2 Minutes", which allows you to watch and read TV Tokyo's economic news and programs in a short time on your way to work or school, we also have popular content such as "Nikkei News Plus 9", an economic news program in which the Nikkei Group mobilizes all of its resources. Paravi also offers popular content such as "Nikkei News Plus 9," an economic news program featuring the combined efforts of the Nikkei Group.
Paravi's 2-week free trial is over!
As mentioned above, Paravi's 2-week free trial has now ended. There is no button on the official website that says "free trial.
Paravi's 2 price plans
Even though Paravi's free trial has ended, there are still many domestic dramas that can only be watched on Paravi, so there are quite a few people who use other unlimited video services. However, if you are thinking, "I want to watch a popular movie, so I should sign up?" But, since there are two different price plans, it is hard to know which one to choose.
Here is a brief summary of Paravi's price plans.
Paravi Basic Plan
The Paravi Basic Plan is a plan that allows you to watch all the unlimited titles on Paravi for 1,017 yen per month. You can watch not only TBS-affiliated dramas and missed delivery features, but also variety shows and animations. The Basic Plan is recommended for those who just want to enjoy videos.
1. What are the features of Paravi Basic Plan?
(1) Enjoy high-definition HD quality on multiple devices.
(2) You can get one "Paravi Ticket" worth 550 yen (tax included) every month to enjoy movies that are not included in the unlimited viewing plan.
2. What can I use with a single account?
1. Up to 5 devices can be registered
The following four types of devices are available for viewing on Paravi. You can register up to 5 devices with one account (one contract). For example, you can register up to 5 devices: 2 smartphones, 1 computer, 1 TV, and 1 tablet.
(2) Number of devices can be viewed simultaneously is limited to one.
Paravi cannot be viewed on multiple devices (terminals) at the same time.
➂The number of profile registrations is limited to 7
Paravi allows up to 6 profiles to be added to a single account, for a maximum of 7 profiles. If you add profiles for family members, you can each use your favorite (My List) registration, viewing history, and rating history. Each profile can also be set to receive e-mail newsletters.
(4) Downloading to a maximum of two devices
Although the number of simultaneous viewing is limited to one device, the number of download devices is limited to two, which means that up to three devices can actually be viewed simultaneously using the "download function" of the smartphone application. In other words, up to three devices can be enjoyed at the same time, including one "streaming playback" device that plays while connected to the Internet and two "offline playback" devices that play content downloaded to the smartphone.
Paravi (Nikkei ID payment) Set Plan
Paravi (Nikkei ID Setup) Set Plan is a plan that allows you to enjoy the contents of the Paravi Basic Plan and a subscription to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun electronic edition for ¥5,094 per month. (The monthly fee for the Nihon Keizai Shimbun Home Delivery Edition is separate, so please refer to the plan price list above.)
Subscribers to Nikkei e-edition and Nihon Keizai Shimbun can purchase "Paravi Basic Plan" at a special price of 817 yen, which is a 200 yen discount. In addition, you can try a free trial for the first month, and if you are a Nikkei reader, we encourage you to try the content available only on Paravi. (There is no cancellation fee for cancelling during the free trial.)
Notes on paravi's monthly plans
- The monthly fee is more expensive if you register through the iOS app.
If you register with iTunes Store payment, the monthly fee is slightly higher at 1,050 yen, so if this is a concern for you, choose a payment method other than iTunes Store payment when you register for Paravi.
- If you register on IOS, you need to cancel 24 hours before the end of the term.
Paravi has a system that does not allow cancellation procedures from the iOS application; if you are viewing Paravi from the application on your iPhone or iPad, please cancel your subscription from the official website of the web browser.
Also, if you have a Paravi Basic Plan subscription, you can continue to use the service until your next renewal date even if you cancel your subscription. The contract will be terminated at the time of the renewal date, so the recommended timing for cancellation is "until the next renewal date. Note, however, that if you register for IOS, you must cancel 24 hours before the end of the term, so if you do not cancel "24 hours before the next renewal date," your subscription will be automatically renewed.
- Separate fee is required to watch rental movies.
With the "Paravi Basic Plan," you can watch as many unlimited movies as you like. However, you will be charged separately when you watch "rental titles" that are indicated as "Rental" or "Ticket Available" in the upper right corner on the official Paravi website. You can pay with Paravi Ticket when you purchase a rental movie. (There are some rental titles for which Paravi Ticket cannot be used.)
- You will be charged automatically unless you cancel your subscription.
It is a common mistake for people who use Paravi on their smartphones and tablets, but simply deleting (uninstalling) the Paravi application does not mean that you have cancelled your subscription. You will be billed automatically unless you cancel the subscription, so you need to cancel your Paravi membership and go to My Page to complete the cancellation procedure.
Paravi's free trial is over! Nikkei readers can get a one-month free trial.
Paravi ended its 2-week free trial offer on June 20, 2022. Although Paravi does not have a free trial period, you can enjoy domestic dramas as much as you want, so if you are interested in Paravi, please check it out as soon as possible.
