Highlights

  • Netflix has cancelled 30-day free trial subscriptions in India.
  • Reliance Jio Postpaid plans give a complimentary subscription to Netflix.
  • Vi REDX postpaid plan for Rs 1099 gives free annual subscription to Netflix.

Until last month, streaming giant Netflix was letting even non-subscribers watch movies and shows for free. This meant people without an account could also watch these shows for free. It was a marketing move to attract more customers, according to a Netflix spokesperson.

However, this month, Netflix has stopped giving free trials across markets. "Free trials are not available, but you can still sign up and take advantage of all Netflix has to offer. There are no contracts, no cancellation fees, and no commitments. You have the freedom to change your plan or cancel online at any time if you decide Netflix isn't for you," Netflix on its help page wrote. It is not clear if the free trials have been temporarily suspended or if it is a permanent move.

However, users can still get access to a complimentary subscription to Netflix through some postpaid plans. Reliance Jio announced a range of postpaid plus plans last month that offer complimentary subscription to Netflix among OTT benefits. Vodafone also offers a complimentary annual subscription to Netflix with its Vodafone RedX plan that comes for Rs 1099.
