How to take advantage of a Netflix free trial
If you're thinking about taking Netflix for a test-drive there are a couple of things you need to know.

Netflix has cancelled its free trial offering. You can find all of the information about the decision here.
Instead of free trials, Netflix is currently offering a small catalogue of content completely free for non-subscribers. You can stream the first episode of shows like Stranger Things and Elite or full movies like The Two Popes and Bird Box without creating an account. This should help you figure out if the service is a good fit for you, as well as provide a glimpse at the Netflix experience.
All Netflix plans offer access to the streaming giant’s entire catalogue of TV shows and movies. The difference between them is based on video quality and number of allowed simultaneous streams. The Basic plan, which costs $9.99 a month, lets you watch in SD quality on 1 device at a time. The Standard plan, which costs $13.99, supports 2 simultaneous streams and comes with HD quality. Finally, the Premium plan lets you watch on 4 devices at the same time, in 4K quality. This one costs $19.99 a month.
While the free trial offer is no longer available in Australia, it’s still running in selected markets where Netflix operates, including the US. If you're giving the service a go for the first time, check out our list of best Netflix TV shows and Netflix original movies to get started.
