Netflix: tries to attract non-subscribers with free Content

0 55

With so many on-demand streaming solutions now available, it is not that easy for Netflix to control the industry anymore.  So it will not come as a surprise that they’d come up with items to lure non-subscribers to pick them over others or make them one of the services that they subscribe to.

Now they are offering free articles, probably for a limited time, which you may get even if you don’t have an account or you do not log in to a lapsed account.

The content that Netflix is providing for free isn’t B movies or vague TV shows.  They’re bringing out the big guns with displays like their hit original series Stranger Things, the Spanish teenager drama Elite, acclaimed miniseries When They See Us, the award-winning film both Popes, and among the most-watched movies in history, Birdbox.

The content may actually vary per area and they may be shifting or rotating those videos every once in a while, so you should see while possible.  There are a couple of caveats for this, however.  While you do not need to sign up or sign in, you will only be able to watch it on Android and desktop browsers. 

You won’t have the ability to watch it on the Netflix app on your Android smartphone or tablet computer or onto Android TV.  IOS browsers are likewise not included in the fun.

You are going to get a 30-second skippable ad before every video but that’s expected as it is a promotion promo after all. And of course, you won’t get to watch an authentic-entire period of the TV shows.

You’ll just get the first episode for free.  Netflix is hoping of course you’ll get hooked on that very first episode and you’re going to want to register for a free trial then eventually subscribe to their service.

You may cancel any time so if you complete all seasons of Stranger Things in a month and you do not want more, you can return to your Netflix existence.

The most basic tier right now from the U.S is $8.99 a month but pricing each area and country is different.
