Netflix has already canceled a 30-day free trial, which was extended earlier this month.
“Free trials are not available,” a note on the company’s website confirms, “but you can still sign up and take advantage of everything Netflix has to offer. There are no contracts, cancellation fees and commitments. You have the freedom to change your plan or cancel online at any time if you decide that Netflix is not for you. “
Some Netflix programs can still be viewed without a subscription. Although it is a small part of the overall subscription offer, I like the titles of the movies Bird box and pilot episodes of shows like Strange things were published on the free Netflix website in August. Earlier in the year, a group of Netflix documentaries and television titles were offered for free on YouTube earlier this year as an overture for teachers navigating through COVID-1

When the company reports its quarterly revenue next week, it will provide an updated global number of subscribers. As of July, it was 193 million.
The realm of free streaming trials is an ever-changing space, as different new and established players experiment with different models. Disney, which had a 7-day trial period when Disney + launched last November, discontinued it in June when it moved Hamilton from a theatrical plan for 2021 to streaming in the subscription service. WarnerMedia’s HBO Max has a fairly stable one-week free trial and adds a $ 3 monthly discount in recent months. Peacock from NBCUniversal offers three months free at a premium level for subscribers who register through Google. The mobile streaming beginner Quibi launched in the spring with a 90-day free trial.
The end of Netflix’s 30-day trial was first announced on Philip Swann’s blog, The TV Answer Man.
