The giant streaming platform Netflix is proving free usage for people in December. The offer is valid for two days, on the weekend of first week of December i.e. on December 5 and 6.
The OTT platform is hosting StreamFest, which would allow users to access anything on Netflix. That’s right! The user could watch a movie, documentary or the TV show they so longed to, at no extra charge.
There is one limitation to the free access though. While five people can stream Netflix at a time when they have paid for it, the free users would only get a single screen.
“So, no one else can use the same login information to stream. But, hey, it’s free, so anyone can sign up on their own,” Netflix said in a statement.
There is no limitation on device though. With the access, users could watch Netflix on their smart phones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs or even gaming consoles!
“You can also access every feature that our members currently use and love —create Profiles (including Kids’ Profiles), set Parental Controls, browse Netflix in Hindi, add series or films to My List, watch with subtitles or dubs, use Smart Downloads on mobile, and see the Top 10 list (which gives you the 10 most popular movies and shows on Netflix in India). This is because we want fans keen to try Netflix to experience it exactly the way our members do,” Monika Shergill Vice President, Content, Netflix India said in a media statement.
To sign up, a user will have to fill in their basic details like name, email id or phone number and password.
The idea of StreamFest came up to attract more customers. Netflix Chief Product Officer and COO Greg Peters had confirmed the same through a statement some time back.
