How To Get Netflix for Free {Proven Ways}

Long gone are the days, when Netflix used to offer a limited free trial and the “watch free” option that let non-subscribers watch the first episodes of selected shows without spending a single penny. The streaming service used these tactics to attract a new user base by providing them with a great experience and persuading them to upgrade to one of the paid plans. 

But soon, users started abusing the “Netflix free trial 3 months” offer. They used to take advantage of the free trial period, cancel it, and then use a different email address to enjoy another free trial. To minimize this loss, Netflix dropped its free trial & watch-free offerings in October 2020.

How Much Is Netflix Usually? 

Netflix offers multiple subscription plans to meet your entertainment needs. 

  • Basic with Ads = $6.99/month (Watch on 1 supported device at a time. Some content will be unavailable.)
  • Basic = $9.99/month (Watch on 1 supported device at a time. Enjoy unlimited content. Allows downloading movies & shows on 1 device.) 
  • Standard = $15.49/month (Watch on 2 supported devices at a time. Enjoy unlimited content. Allows downloading movies & shows on 2 devices.) 
  • Premium = $19.99/month (Watch on 4 supported devices at a time. Enjoy unlimited content. Allows downloading movies & shows on 4 devices.)

      Hello Ankit, it is not possible to get 2 free trials on a single credit card. Each free trial on Netflix requires all fresh details including contact info and card details.
