Update December 08, 2020: The Netflix StreamFest in India has been extended till December 9, 2020. Yes, free Netflix from December 7 to December 9, 2020. Simply download the latest Netflix app and register using a free account.
In these trying times, people prefer to consume content online from the comfort of their homes rather than visiting the theaters. Netflix has become quite popular worldwide, but apparently, not so much in India. Especially when every other production house, TV channel, and OTT platforms are bringing their own streaming services and apps. India has numerous OTT (Over-the-top media service) platforms like Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Disney+, Sony Liv, and many more. In order to attract customers, Netflix is giving free access to its service for free on December 5 and December 6, 2020.
Netflix is running the StreamFest for the very first time to provide free streaming for 48 Hrs. You can stream your favorite movies and TV shows for free on Netflix on December 5-6. The event is supposed to start at 12.01 pm on December 5, will end at 11.59 pm on December 6.
Most importantly, you don’t need to login, or have a paid subscription, or input any credit card details. See the tutorial on how to watch Netflix for free in the StreamFest 2020 festival.
However, Netflix will limit the resolution to standard definition for StreamFest 2020. But you will still have access to all the features like creating profiles, browsing in Hindi, adding series or films to My List, watching with subtitles or dubs, setting parental controls, use Smart Downloads on mobile, etc. This a great marketing strategy by Netflix to attract more users to the platform and compete against other streaming platforms like Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Zee5, and others.
Don’t get me wrong, Netflix is still one of the most popular streaming platforms as of now. It has a subscriber base of over 150+ million people. Around 70% of the Netflix users binge-watch movies and TV shows, which takes up 26% of global streaming traffic and 15% of the world’s bandwidth. Maybe Netflix wants more and not be quite dominant in India. So Netflix just announced StreamFest 2020 for India only.
