How can I watch a movie now

Netflix for free: Watch movies and series for free

There is no longer the free Netflix trial month. You can now watch selected films and series for free.

In the past, interested parties had the opportunity to test the Netflix streaming service free of charge for a month with a trial subscription. However, in June 2020 this model was abolished. In Germany and some other countries there is no longer a free month on Netflix.

It is not known why Germany of all places is affected by this deletion. The trial month of Netflix is ​​still available in Austria and Switzerland, as well as in the USA. But a new feature has now been activated with which you can watch selected Netflix content for free.

Netflix free: this is how it works

In the “Watch Free” area of ​​Netflix you can now watch some of the most popular series and films completely free of charge. This is supposed to compensate for the lack of a trial month and convince the curious about the offer of the streaming service.

Advantage for users: You don't have to take out a subscription and you don't run the risk of forgetting to cancel after the free trial month. The disadvantage: The selection of films and series that Netflix offers for free is of course limited. So you have to be satisfied with what the company has to offer and you cannot browse the offer according to your own interests.

Netflix states that in addition to various films, series can also be watched for free. In fact, sometimes only the first episodes of the first season are freely available. From Netflix's point of view, this is understandable, but whether this will ultimately be attractive for users remains to be seen.
