Last month, Netflix announced plans to give its users in India access to free streaming for a weekend. Greg Peters, COO and Chief Product Officer at Netflix, said during the company’s earnings call, “We think that giving away everyone in a country access to Netflix for free for a weekend could be a great way to expose a bunch of new people to the amazing stories that we have, the service and how it works.”
“At Netflix, we want to bring the most amazing stories from across the world to all fans of entertainment in India. It’s why we’re hosting StreamFest: an entire weekend of free Netflix,” the company said in a statement.
To access it, visit netflix.com/StreamFest, sign up with your name, email or phone number, and password, and start streaming no credit or debit card or payment needed. Monika Shergill, Vice President, Content, Netflix India, said, “Anyone who signs in during StreamFest gets one stream in standard definition so, no one else can use the same login information to stream.”
Content streaming giant Netflix last month admitted that it has much work to do in countries like India.
