The online streaming giant, Netflix, is quite popular among the masses, especially since the coronavirus pandemic hit the world. By having nowhere to go to, most users are passing their time chilling at home and binge-watching shows on the platform, and many new users have subscribed to different plans offered by them as well. So what about non-members who want to avail the features by Netflix?
Netflix has come up with a new strategy wherein non-members can easily stream certain movies and shows that are available for free viewing. This has helped them attract new users to the platform around the world, and also serves as a trial for free and subscribe later option, in addition to the 30 days trial period that it was earlier offering but with an assigned debit or credit card. Some of the more popular shows and movies in the ‘free’ list include the following,
- Stranger Things
- Murder Mystery
- Grace and Frankie
- Love is Blind
- Boss Baby: Back in Business
The best part is that non-members do not have even have to sign up to avail this! This new features comes in view to attract new customers and is available only on PC and android devices, with a rollout probably happening soon for iOS users as well.
For Indians, this kind of strategy was initiated last year as well when Netflix India made ‘Bard of Blood’ available to view for free for non-members as well. Only the first episode was available to view which definitely lured more viewers to jump in on a plan and start watching more shows and movies on Netflix. Other platforms like Amazon Prime, Hotstar and Voot also follow the same.
