Netflix Drives For New Subscribers - Offer Free Titles As Marketing Ploy
Global streaming giant Netflix is driving to add more to its existing 190+ million subscribers globally and has decided to offer ten free-to-watch titles to entice new subscribers. Netflix has set up a dedicated free-to-watch page that would help with this.
The free-to-watch page has an eclectic selection of titles, which are all Netflix originals, that non-current Netflix subscribers can watch for free. The titles listed included shows like The Two Popes, Bird Box, Love is Blind, Stranger Things, Our Planet, Murder Mystery and Grace and Frankie.
Netflix indicated that this marketing drive is hopefully to give sceptic of its platform a feel of the experience they can expect when they get entertained by the video-on-demand platform.
It is worth noting though that Netflix has offered free content in the past. Earlier in the year, people were allowed to watch the first episode of the teen drama - P.S. I Still Love You - for free.
