10 Netflix documentaries that you can now watch for free on YouTube

In recent weeks we have seen how many streaming platforms have begun to offer part of their premium catalog openly and for free, as is the case with Apple TV or HBO in Mexico and the US. Netflix for its part has made a similar move, publishing 10 of your most popular documentaries straight to YouTube, so that everyone can access its viewing without any restriction.

The difference with respect to Apple TV and HBO, however, is that it is content with a high educational value. For years Netflix has been allowing the viewing of this type of material in classrooms and schools, but due to the COVID-19 crisis and the closure of schools it has decided to post these documentaries on YouTube, accompanying each viewing with additional educational material so that can be used by teachers and students.
