Netflix has just made some of the films and series in its catalog open and can be viewed free of charge, without the need to register first.
Netflix now offers free access to popular movies and series from its catalog. You don't even need an account. The selection includes Stranger Things, Elite, Baby Boss: Back in Business, and Murder Mystery. But here's the catch: when it comes to series, not all seasons or even all episodes are available for free.
Netflix has just made an announcement as part of its strategy to attract new subscribers. Some of the films and series in its catalog are now open and can be viewed free of charge, without the need to register first.
"You can watch some of the great TV shows and movies from Netflix for free at netflix.com/watch-free. Choose from a variety of TV shows and movies that are available to watch now for free. You don’t have to sign-up or register, you can just press play and watch." says a recently released support page.
The free selection includes series and movies such as Stranger Things, Elite, In Their Eyes, Baby Boss: Back in Business, Murder Mystery and The Two Popes. It also includes TV shows and documentaries such as Love is Bling. This selection is bound to evolve over the months. If this ad seems teasing, there are restrictions that limit the interest of the thing.
Netflix offers a selection of TV shows and movies to watch free so you can experience some of our great content. Visit netflix.com/watch-free to see what is available to watch free. The selection may change from time to time, so watch now!
The option could replace the one month trial on Netflix.
The streaming giant limited the series to the first episode of the first season. To access the sequel, you must of course choose a Netflix package. The company told the Gadgets 360 site that it was looking at "different marketing offers to attract new members and provide them with a great experience. Netflix has been groping around for several months to choose an offer that's right for new subscribers.
The 30-day free trial was discontinued last February and then briefly resumed before being replaced by a 7-day free trial. For the past few days, the platform has been testing the first month at a reduced price ranging from 0.05 to 3.99 €. The new free content could eventually replace other Netflix strategies.
We don't know how long the campaign will last, but it could well be extended over time. This is not the first time Netflix has made content from its catalog free. This was already the case at the end of last year with the film Klaus' The Legend.
How can I enjoy movies and series for free on Netflix?
Free access to the selection of series and movies is available worldwide, starting now. Simply go to netflix.com/watch-freefrom a browser on PC and Mac. Android devices are also supported, which is not the case for iOS, as Netflix claims on its assistant page, without explanation.
