Netflix the OTT platform is planning to offer free access to its services to all non-subscribers in India. According to the report, the company is providing this offering to Indian users between December 5-6th. This can be a strategy to attract more subscribers to the platform. Just to recall, last year Netflix stopped offering the first month free trial in India.
The company is promoting this as StreamFest, under this promotional offer Netflix is allowing users to watch the entire range of categories including Netflix original series, documentaries, movies, and a lot more among the others. Notably, the company is offering this free access in standard-definition (SD) stream only, so don’t expect HD or 4K streaming. Moreover, Netflix might limit the number of users and there is a possibility that you will end up receiving an error text reading “StreamFest is at capacity”.
