Who doesn’t want free subscriptions to Netflix or any other OTT? Here’s how you can watch your favorite movies and TV shows on various OTT channels, including Netflix, Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video, Zee 5, and more!
How To Get Netflix Free This New Year 2021?
Earlier, Netflix used to offer a free trial for one month, but that is not available anymore. In December, Netflix had also introduced the Netflix StreamFest, wherein we were able to watch Netflix for free for two days.
Also, most telecom operators don’t offer Netflix free with their recharge plans. But now, Vodafone Idea, or VI, offers a free Netflix plan as an option if you opt for a new postpaid connection and get the RedX plan or higher.
Under the RedX plan, whose starting price is Rs. 1099 per month, you will be given a six month lock-in period, and one year of Netflix free. It also offers a one year subscription to Netflix on your TV and mobile, which will cost you Rs. 5988 per year. This is the one year amount for the plan whose starting price is Rs. 499.
Once you get the Vodafone connection, you can get the Netflix subscription by setting up a new account or signing into an existing account on the OTT platform. Apparently, the amount is credited to your Netflix account directly and the customer will be able to avail of the service for free for a year. The option to pick more expensive plans of Netflix is also available, but that means that this would finish the credited amount faster. Also, anyone who has an existing RedX plan can also enjoy the free Netflix subscription.
Jio also offers a free subscription to Netflix with all of its postpaid plans; however, this is limited to only the basic mobile-only subscription, which comes at Rs. 199. This plan offers only a Netflix subscription that you can avail of on your mobile.
In order to activate Netflix, Jio customers will need to install the MyJio app on their phones, after which, you need to log in with JioPostPaid Plus credentials. After that, you have to click on the “Activate Now” on the Netflix banner on the app’s homepage.
After this, you will need to log in to Netflix with your account, be it an existing one or a newly created one, and your Netflix will be instantly activated.
Another easy way out is to ask your friends or family members for their netflix credentials; however, even if you are sharing your credentials, Netflix can be streamed only on four screens simultaneously.
