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 30-day upgrade for anyone who signs up for the service. So if you sign up for the platform’s Basic plan, you’ll be upgraded to the Standard plan for 30 days free of additional cost. On the same note, if you sign up for the Standard plan, you’ll be upgraded to the Premium plan for the first month. There are currently no promotions available for users who sign up to the Premium plan from the get-go.
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.
