Last week, streaming platform Netflix announced that it will be free for everyone in India in the first week of December, i.e. between December 5 and December 6. The streaming platform is calling it Netflix Streamfest. The Streamfest will begin on December 5 12:01am and December 6 11:59 pm. The company says that the idea behind offering free Netflix for this weekend is to let “fans keen to try Netflix to experience it exactly the way as the members do.” Also Read - Netflix 'Shuffle Play' feature to roll out for users globally this year
During the Netflix Streamfest, everyone in India, members or non-members, will be able to get free access to all Netflix originals, films, popular series, award-winning documentaries, and everything else that is originally offered under the paid service. Currently, Netflix is offering four subscription plans in India. The plans include a mobile plan at Rs 199, a basic plan at Rs 499, a standard plan at Rs 649 and lastly, a premium plan at Rs 799. If you are not a Netflix subscriber and wish to use the platform, this weekend is a good chance. Also Read - JioFiber streams Netflix the best, beating Airtel and other broadband operators
