Netflix is a popular streaming service that allows users to stream movies and TV shows over the internet. But did you know that Netflix doesn’t require a cable subscription to access its content?
In fact, anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can sign up for a free trial of Netflix. And after the first seven days, all you’ll need is a valid email address and password to log in.
So, if you’re looking to cut the cord on your cable bill but still enjoy watching some of your favorite shows, here’s everything you need to know about signing up for Netflix.
1. Sign Up For Free Trial
You can sign up for a 7-day free trial of Netflix right now. Just visit www.netflix.com/trial and follow the prompts to set up your free trial.
2. Create Account & Login
After you’ve signed up for the trial, you’ll receive an email confirming your request. Once you click the link in the email, you’ll be taken to the Netflix home page. Click the ‘Create Account’ button to begin creating your profile.
3. Choose Plan
Once you’ve created your account, you’ll be asked to choose between Standard ($7.99 per month), Premium ($9.99 per month), or Ultra ($11.99 per month) plans. Each plan gives you different levels of access to Netflix features.
Standard lets you stream unlimited movies and TV episodes, plus download titles to play offline. Premium adds HD quality video and 4K Ultra HD videos, along with the ability to download multiple films at once. Finally, Ultra unlocks even more features, including the ability to binge watch entire seasons of series at once.
4. Watch Movies and Shows
Now that you’ve chosen your plan, you can browse Netflix’s library of movies and TV shows. To find something to watch, just type in keywords like actor, director, genre, or subject matter.
5. Download Content
You can also save movies and TV shows to your device so you can watch them later. Simply select the movie or episode you’d like to download and click the ‘Download’ button.
6. Cancel Subscription
At any point during your free trial, you can cancel your membership and stop receiving emails from Netflix. However, you won’t lose any of your saved content.
