Netflix has managed to reach a point where it offers a good quantity and quality of content at an affordable price. But that does not mean that from time to time rates rise, and taking into account the "Netflix" rate that the Spanish government wants to impose, it is likely that this will happen again in not long time. Do youIs there any way to watch Netflix for free?
Always staying within the legal tricks or "hacks", there are a few ways to watch Netflix for free without spending a dollar. It is clear that we are not going to discover penicillin, but in any case, if you know of any other method, do not hesitate to share it in the comments area. We started!
Trick # 1: Get 7, 14 or 30 days free trial ... and then repeat the process
Depending on our country of origin, Netflix offers different free trial periods. In the case of Spain, for example, there is currently no free trial option (as indicated on this page of your helpcenter). But this has not always been the case, as this year it has been offering a free month, 14 free days and even a free trial week. Offers come and go.
Anyway, once we have achieved our first trial period, the idea is to chain these free trials. Do you think it can't be done? The trick is in cancel the trial month before the end, and wait for a new one to arrive. Netflix is known to offer a second trial period to "dissatisfied" users, after a couple of months.
In addition, if we re-hire Netflix after a year of our previous free trial, it is most likely that here we will also have the first month free.
Unfortunately, in this way we would only get a maximum of 3 months free, and that taking into account that we were very lucky. To get more, we would need multiple email accounts and credit cards (or other payment methods). In this way, we can talk with our relatives and use the data of our father, then those of our mother, siblings, etc. With this we would not get very far either, but without a doubt we would be saving a significant sum of money, which in the end is what it is all about.
Trick # 2: Shared accounts
Once Netflix's free trial periods are exhausted, we have no choice but to find a good charitable soul. Depending on the Netflix subscription that a user has contracted, they can watch series and movies in streaming simultaneously from several devices at the same time.
- Basic plan: 1 screen at a time.
- HD standard plan: 2 screens at the same time.
- Ultra HD premium plan: 4 screens at the same time.
If we have someone you know who uses the premium plan solely because it allows you to view content in Ultra HD, it is possible that you will see a screen - taking into account that you can share your account with up to 4 people. If the person is already paying for the service and is a very close friend or immediate family member, they will most likely not mind sharing it with you. Of course, remember to invite him to eat from time to time. Otherwise, the premium plan paid halfway between 4 people comes out to less than 4 euros / month per person, a quite acceptable figure on the other hand.
Trick # 3: Keep an eye on Netflix promotions
Last July the streaming company launched a contest in which they gave away a free subscription to Netflix for 1,000 months (or what is the same, 83 long years), which has been free access for life for most of mortals.
This promotion was carried out on the occasion of the premiere of the film The old guard, and for this we had to win the game of the same name that is available online (and still active, in case you are interested in trying it).
Logically, the contest is over and the prize is distributed, but nothing prevents the company from launching a new similar advertising campaign tomorrow to promote its next big premiere. In order not to miss out on these types of opportunities, nothing better than following Netflix on their social networks. His Twitter account is one of the most active in the community.
Trick # 4: Check the free Netflix offers from operators and companies in your country
Netflix has become such a popular streaming platform that many companies and operators offer their services among their offerings. In Spain, for example, Movistar offers 3 months of Netflix for free when contracting the Fusión Selección Champions X2 100Mb plan (offer valid until June 30).
Orange for its part, also offers Netflix free for life in your Orange Love Netflix package included. It includes a basic plan, but we can also go up to the standard plan for 3 euros more, or to the premium for 6 extra euros. In addition, it also offers 3 months of Netflix for free at numerous rates. A truly varied offer, without a doubt.
Other companies such as Vodafone or Euskaltel also allow us to contract Netflix with their services, but they do not offer any offer, being the same price as if we hired it on our own.
One last tip: try other streaming platforms
Netflix is not the only streaming platform on the market. If you don't want to pay for a monthly subscription, you can always vary and try other services such as HBO, Amazon Prime Video, SkyTV or RakutenTV. All of them offer a free trial month, in such a way that we can chain several months of series and streaming movies without spending a penny.You have Telegram installed?
