All free things are good but all good things (unfortunately?) Are not free. Netflix appears to have taken this seriously since it canceled its 30-day free trial period. The development was first noticed by Phillip Swan, who notes the developments in the television world on his website The TV Answer Man.
“Free trials are not available, but you can still sign up and enjoy everything Netflix has to offer,” Netflix says on its Help Center page. “There are no contracts, no cancellation fees and no commitments. You have the freedom to change your plan or cancel it online at any time if you decide Netflix isn’t for you. As a Netflix member, all of our plans give you access to our full catalog of TV shows and movies. Choose a plan that works for you and join Netflix! “
Swan noted that the increasingly crowded streaming category could be one of the reasons Netflix canceled free trials. Another reason could be to generate revenue. However, there are no official announcements from Netflix yet.
Currently, the free trial option is not available in all markets. India today Tech we can confirm this as we tried to create an account and the usual “30 day free trial option” is not available. However, Netflix offers monthly subscriptions starting at Rs 199 which can be canceled at any time. It’s unclear whether users who were already in the middle of a 30-day trial were also deprived of the free streaming.
The free trial option is no longer available when users set up a new account on Netflix.
