Netflix just announced that its services would be streamed for free in India for two days. The users will be able to watch any show or series of their choice without entering the card details or buying the subscription. The event is called Streamfeat and will go live in India from December 5 up to December 6.
Users have to enter their name, email address, create a password for their account, and benefit from the offer. Netflix announced its Streamfest as, “An idea we’re excited about — and we’ll see how it goes, we think that giving everyone in a country access to Netflix for free for a weekend could be a great way to expose a bunch of new people to the amazing stories that we have. Really creating an event, and hopefully, get a bunch of those folks to sign up.”
Netflix stopped offering a 30-day free trial in India earlier this year. And soon, it stopped offering a free trial in all the other markets too. It also introduced a low-cost mobile streaming plan at Rs 199 to attract more subscribers.
“We have been working hard to try and make our offering in India more competitive, more attractive to members and members-to-be, and there’s a bunch of different product features we’ve been doing, partnerships and payments integrations,” stated the COO of the company.
