When it comes to paid video streaming services, Netflix is one of the most prominent and famous of these services, as it has a huge subscriber base of 167 million subscribers in 2019, according to statista, and one of the reasons for its popularity is also to offer a free trial period of up to 30 days When registering for the first time, but for most countries where the service can be viewed, a free trial is not available anymore.
So, how can you watch Netflix even if the free trial period is canceled?
For many years, Netflix has offered a 30-day free trial, and although the conditions for getting the free period require you to create an account with your credit card number and fill in the payment details, you can cancel the membership before the free trial period ends and not pay anything.
The free trial period was not limited, but all the benefits of the regular membership can be accessed, so you can see what you want, as much as you want, and the trial period was available globally, but in 2018 the company stopped it in Mexico, and began to stop it in the rest of the countries gradually until Last October, it announced its suspension in the United States and most other countries.
Note: You can find out if Netflix offers a free trial period in your country by visiting this support page and selecting your country in the drop-down list.
So far, Netflix has not released a statement on the reason for stopping the free trial, but with many other streaming services available, such as: Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus and HBO, Netflix may want to compete more and attract the largest possible number of subscribers who pay a fee. Especially since it is distinguished by its original content that is not present on any other platform.
And now, with the free trial version being discontinued in most countries, there are still some ways that you can watch Netflix content for free, these are the most important of them:
1- Watch Netflix documentaries on YouTube:
During the past month of April, Netflix provided some documentaries on its YouTube channel as a way to provide free educational materials that would support teachers and students during the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, as all these documentaries can be viewed, without a Netflix account.
