In an attempt to lure more and more subscribers, Netflix tries new marketing promotions from time to time and the latest one includes free access to select Netflix Original movies and TV shows. Yes, Netflix is letting you watch select Original Movies and TV shows without creating a Netflix account. The new promotion applies to select movies and only the first episode of the TV shows.
Netflix further mentions on its “how to watch free movies and TV shows on Netflix” help page that the facility is available for anyone using a computer or Android device. This means it is not available for iOS devices or other platforms, including smart TVs, or Fire Stick. Also, you will not be able to watch the said free content while in incognito mode in the supported browser.
In a statement to Gadgets 360, Netflix said, “We’re looking at different marketing promotions to attract new members and give them a great Netflix experience.” As the tech publication points out, this is limited-time free access and a 30-second skippable ad for Netflix will before every title. Also, this offer is available to just anyone and is not limited to a specific country.
So, if the subscription fee had been keeping you away from the streaming service, then now is the time to start watching some content for free and decide if you want to continue.
This is not the first time that Netflix is letting you access some content for free. In September last year, it offered the first episode of Bard of Blood in India for free and Elite season 2 in parts of Latin America for free. This was an attempt to attract new customers and let them decide if they wish to continue or not. The latest one is no different, though it comes with even better benefits as you can watch a full movie without any fee.
These movies are available for free to watch -
The free Netflix TV shows and movies available to watch without a subscription include Stranger Things, Bird Box, Grace and Frankie, Murder Mystery, Boss Baby, Elite, Two Popes, Our Planet, When They See Us, Love is Blind. Remember that while you’ll be able to watch movies in full, the offer allows you to watch only the first episode of the select TV shows.
You can later decide if you wish to continue by choosing a plan that looks better to you.
