Netflix recently killed off its free trials but now, the streaming service will run a no-cost look called StreamFest on Android for two days…
Streaming king Netflix is planning to run a free two-day event, StreamFest, beginning on Friday, December 4th. But, it will only be available on Android devices. The promotion, confirmed by the streaming platform to Protocol, will make the entire catalog accessible to anyone who isn’t a subscriber, no payment whatsoever required. This, only about a week after abruptly ending its longstanding free trial period.
Netflix will Run Free Trial Period Called StreamFest, a Free Trial Viewing Period on Android, Beginning December 4th
Although the complete Netflix library will be viewable to those who qualify, there seems to be a limit on the number of active watchers allowed. This comes from a line in the programming reading, “Netflix StreamFest is at capacity.” In other words, the streaming service is anticipating it will exceed its allowable viewing volume. So, anyone enjoying the free entertainment event should expect some level of interruption.
This appears to be part of a new strategy to attract new customers. Last week, a company spokesperson told Engadget, “We’re looking at different marketing promotions in the US to attract new members and give them a great Netflix experience.”
