Netflix has succeeded to reach a point where it offers a good quantity and quality movie subscriptions at an affordable price. But that does not mean that from time to time the rates won’t change.
Always staying within the legal tricks or hacks, there are a few ways to watch Netflix for free without spending a dime. Continue reading!
Method1: Get 7, 14 or 30 days free trial… and then repeat the process
Depending on your country of origin, Netflix offers different free trial periods. In the case of some countries, for example, there is currently no free trial option (as indicated on this help center page). But it hasn’t always been that way since this year it has been offering a free month, 14 free days and even a week free trial. Offers come and go.
Anyway, once we have achieved our first trial period, the idea is to chain these free trials. Do you think you can’t? The trick is to cancel the trial month before it ends, and wait for a new one to arrive. Netflix is known for offering a second trial period to “dissatisfied” users, after a couple of months.
In addition, if we subscribe to Netflix again after a year of our previous free trial, it is likely that we will also have the first month for free.
Unfortunately, in this way we would only get a maximum of 3 months for free, and that considering that we were very lucky. To get more, we would need several email accounts and credit cards (or other payment methods). In this way, we can talk with our relatives and use the data of our father, then those of our mother, brothers, etc. With this, we would not go very far either, but without a doubt, we would be saving an important sum of money, which in the end is what it is all about.
Method 2: Shared Accounts
Once the free trial periods of Netflix are exhausted we have no choice but to look for a good charitable soul. Depending on the Netflix subscription that a user has contracted, you can watch series and movies streaming simultaneously from several devices at the same time.
- Basic plan: 1 screen at a time.
- Standard HD plan: 2 screens at a time.
- Premium Ultra HD plan: 4 screens at a time.
If we have someone you know who uses the premium plan only because it allows you to view content in Ultra HD, it is possible that you will be on some screen – taking into account that you can share your account with up to 4 people. If the person is already paying for the service and is a very close friend or direct family member, they most likely do not mind sharing it with you. Just remember to invite him to eat from time to time. Otherwise, the premium plan paid halfway between 4 people costs less than 4 euros/month per person, a figure quite acceptable on the other hand.
Method 3: Review the free Netflix offers of operators and companies in your country
Netflix has become such a popular streaming platform that many companies and operators offer its services among their offers. In Spain, for example, Movistar offers a month of free Netflix (in addition to including it in its “Fusion” rate).
Orange, meanwhile, also offers free Netflix for life in its included Orange Love Netflix package. It includes a basic plan, but we can also go up to the standard plan for 3 euros more, or to the premium plan for 6 euros extra. In addition, it also offers 3 months of Netflix for free at numerous rates. A really varied offer, no doubt.
Other companies such as Vodafone or Euskaltel also allow you to subscribe to Netflix with their services without any offer, being the same price.
One last tip: try other streaming platforms
Netflix is not the only streaming platform on the market. If you do not want to pay for a monthly subscription, you can always try other services such as HBO, Amazon Prime Video, SkyTV or RakutenTV. All of them offer a free trial month, so we can chain several months of streaming series and movies without spending a penny.
