The Netflix launched on Monday (31) a page that brings together films and series with free access for those who do not sign the platform. With titles like Stranger Things , Bird Box and Dois Papas , the novelty is available for users in Brazil and wants to attract more subscribers to the streaming service.
The company had already tested free access to some original productions in the last year, but for a few countries and with a small selection . Now, the experiment has been extended to almost 200 countries where Netflix operates, with a larger catalog of content. In the case of the series, only the first episodes are available, while the films can be consumed from start to finish.
There is a 30-second ad before each episode or movie, but it can be skipped. The streaming platform confirms to TechCrunch that “it tests different marketing promotions to attract new members and give them a great experience with Netflix”. The company does not comment until when the resource will be available.The original series released in the first wave are Stranger Things , Elite , The Chefinho – Back to business , Eyes that Condemn , Blind Wedding , Our Planet and Grace and Frankie . It is also possible to watch the Mediterranean Mystery , Bird Box and Two Popes movies for free . According to Netflix, “the selection may change from time to time”.
You can see the titles available and start watching them on the official Netflix website. It is not necessary to create an account. Free content can be accessed in any compatible browser on the desktop or Android ; iOS users are left out.
