Earlier in the year Netflix released a number of documentaries on YouTube to make them free to watch and now they have announced a handful of films and TV shows you can watch too – without needing to subscribe. Films including “Bird Box” and “The Two Popes” feature alongside the first episodes of “Stranger Things”, “Elite” and “Grace and Frankie” – to watch them simply head over to https://www.netflix.com/watch-free where you can take your pick on some free Netflix Originals. As Netflix remove the free trial across more and more countries it only makes sense to offer some content for free as a ‘teaser’ for potential subscribers. Obviously it’s all marketing so there will also be various links and prompts to subscribe but, hey, let’s be honest, the first episode of Stranger Things will leave you wanting more.
The full list of free episodes and films are shown below:
