Stream TV Shows and Movies with Netflix

The secret to getting Netflix for nix? Check out their free trial offers.

There's nothing better than getting something for free - and Netflix is putting grins on our faces by giving us just that: FREEBIES. The video on-demand service is offering new customers access to their extensive library of TVs and movies for a whole month absolutely free.

What's the catch? Pretty much nothing, really. This is a one-time-only, new-customers deal and so long as you cancel before your 30 days is up, you won't be charged a thing. You will however need to provide your own Internet connection and data to accommodate - so if you don't have all that sorted yet, you might like to check out some of the broadband plans currently on the market before starting out (because there's nothing worse than getting a freebie and not being able to use it because you didn't get the set-up right). Once that's all sorted, subscribe to Netflix below and give that one-month a good run. Because you can. For free.

We see that satisfied smile on your face.

What is Netflix?

Currently the biggest thing since sliced bread (so to speak), Netflix is an Internet TV streaming service that allows you access to an extensive library of TV shows and movies to watch wherever and whenever you want using a supported device.


What do I need to use Netflix?

Essentially you need three things:

  • A device that supports Netflix. This can include a Smart TV, games console (e.g. PS3 and XBox 360), Apple TV, Google Chromecast and Apple and Android tablets and smartphones.
  • Internet connection (as well as enough data to view all your favourite shows and movies)

What’s included in my Netflix free trial?

This will depend on the free trial that you sign yourself up for. At the moment, Netflix offers a free 30 day trial as standard for all new users. Which plan you trial for free will be entirely up to you when you opt in for it. Currently, the plans on offer are:

  • Single stream SD - $8.99 per month
  • Two stream HD - $11.99 per month
  • Four stream 4K - $14.99 per month

Which plan you should opt in for will depend on how many devices you’d like to use (one, two or up to four) and the quality of your viewing (SD/HD/4K). All are available for the free 30 day trial period, however after your trial period expires if you don’t end your subscription you’ll be charged for another month of your chosen plan. That’s 30 days, but what if you want six MONTHS of free Netflix? Your wish is our command. Until 30 June 2015, Appliances Online is offering up half a year of free Netflix when you purchase a selected Samsung UHD TV with them. This just means you can upgrade your TV and get free streamed entertainment on it for 6 months. Pretty sweet, eh? To access this offer click on the deal at the top of this page.


How do I get my Netflix free trial?

To get your free 30 day trial, you just need to visit the Netflix site and subscribe. So long as you’re a new customer, you’ll be given the chance to opt in for the free trial upon sign up. When you do, you’ll be asked which plan you’d like to trial and will then be required to fill in your personal details as well as your payment details (don’t worry, they won’t charge you!). If you’re after your 6 month worth of Netflix through an Appliances Online purchase, simply click on the deal above to be securely redirected to the website to choose your new Smart TV. Then, fill out your details on their online claim form within 14 working days of purchasing your TV, attach a scanned version of your receipt as proof of purchase and hit submit. A unique code will be sent to you once your claim has been accepted which you can then redeem on Netflix’s Special Offers page.

Once activated you’ll have 30 days to watch all the movies and TV shows available to your heart’s content. But be warned, after the 30 day period if you haven’t canceled your subscription - which you can do easily via your online Netflix account) you will be charged another month’s subscription fee for the plan that you opted in for. So if you’re not planning to continue the service, remember to set a reminder to cancel it before your free trial period is up.

    Why is it that when I watch Netflix on my laptop it cost me in optus data and I pay a fee each month

      Hello D,

      Thanks for the question.

      As we all know Netflix is a streaming service. Right now it is a requirement to have a network to be able to access the page or use the app. It wouldn’t be possible to stream if you are not connected to the internet.

      Watching movies or TV shows on Netflix uses about 1 GB of data per hour for each stream of standard definition video, and up to 3 GB per hour for each stream of HD video. Adjusting the data usage settings for your account is the easiest way to reduce the amount of bandwidth used while watching Netflix. There are four data usage settings to choose from. Each estimate below is per stream:

      Low (0.3 GB per hour), Medium (SD: 0.7 GB per hour, High (Best video quality, up to 3 GB per hour for HD and 7 GB per hour for Ultra HD)
      Auto (Adjusts automatically to deliver the highest possible quality, based on your current Internet connection speed)

      To select a setting that works best for your Internet plan, navigate to the Your Account page and select Playback settings in the My Profile section. Please take note that it may take up to 8 hours for the changes to take effect. Restricting data usage may effect video quality while you are watching Netflix.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers!
      Chester

    I currently use a t box to access presto thru my hd TVs. Can I use the t box to access Netflix thru my tv. Also how many tvs can you get Netflix on the standard plan and can I use a Netflix card instead of using my credit card on line. Thanks

      Hi Jeni,

      Thanks for contacting finder.com.au.

      - Yes, you can access Netflix through Telstra TV.
      - The Standard plan allows you to stream on two screens (the Basic, one, and the Premium, four).
      - Yes, you can use Netflix gift cards to top up your account. Netflix gift cards can be found at these locations.

      Thank you,
      Brodie

    Hi How much Data I need to watch these movies we have only 12 Gb a month is that enough

    • Staff
      Brodie | December 21, 2015

      Hi there,

      Netflix uses about 1GB per hour for Standard Definition and 3GB per hour for High Definition, so you would go through 12GB rather quickly. I’d recommend check your area for NBN availability here.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
