Netflix to Offer Free Two Day Access to Indians
Netflix is hosting a new initiative “StreamFest” this coming December where it will be giving free access to all of its shows, movies, and documentaries to everybody in India for two days.
Netflix in its blog post announced that anyone who signs in during StreamFest next December gets one stream in standard definition. Therefore, preventing anyone else to use the same login information to stream. Users may sign up via the Android app or even a browser, to login to watch Netflix on a smart TV, gaming console or an iOS device.
This will give non-Netflix members access to all the features for two days in India. Users can create Profiles (including Kids’ Profiles), set Parental Controls, browse Netflix in Hindi, add series or films to My List, watch with subtitles or dubs, use Smart Downloads on mobile, and see the Top 10 list.
Netflix further added, "to make sure everyone who comes in gets the best experience, we will have to limit the number of StreamFest viewers. So during StreamFest, if you see a message saying “StreamFest is at capacity”, don’t worry. We’ll let you know when you can start streaming."
