In this news, we discuss the Netflix has cancelled 30-day free subscription trials, here’s how you can still get them at no cost.
Until last month, streaming giant Netflix even allowed non-subscribers to watch movies and shows for free. This meant that people without an account could also watch these shows for free. It was a marketing initiative to attract more customers, according to a spokesperson for Netflix.
However, this month Netflix stopped offering free trials in the markets. “Free trials aren’t available, but you can still sign up and enjoy all that Netflix has to offer. There are no contracts, no cancellation fees and no commitments. You have the freedom to change your plan or cancel online at any time if you decide Netflix is not for you, ”Netflix wrote on its help page. It is not clear if the free trials have been temporarily suspended or if this is a permanent move.
However, users can still get access to a free Netflix subscription through certain postpaid plans.
