Over the past year, Netflix has attempted to expand its appeal in part by making few titles free to non-paying users in select markets. Now the American giant is extending this test to users across the globe with a larger free catalog.
The on-demand video streaming service is currently offering select Netflix Original movies and TV shows, including
- Stranger Things
- Murder Mystery
- The Boss Baby: Back in Business
- Bird Box
- When they See Us
- Love is Blind
- The Two Popes
- Our Planet
- Grace and Frankie
Only first episodes of the shows are available for free viewing, though, after which Netflix prompts users to become subscribers. Movies are available in full-length, however. There is also a 30-second ad that rolls before you play the title, but it can be skipped.
A support page for the freebies notes that the content is available to watch through web browsers on computers or Android devices, but that iOS browsers are not supported. But you can’t argue with the price.
