Popular streaming platform Netflix has come up with a brand new idea that they are calling ‘Streamfest’ wherein, anyone in India will have access to all the content available on their platform, including – movies, TV shows, original series and documentaries, for free starting from December 5, 12:01 am to December 6, 11:59 pm. Netflix COO Greg Peters said about this new event, “An idea we’re excited about — and we’ll see how it goes, we think that giving everyone in a country access to Netflix for free for a weekend could be a great way to expose a bunch of new people to the amazing stories that we have. Really creating an event, and hopefully, get a bunch of those folks to sign up.”
How To Register For ‘Streamfest’
In order to avail this offer, users simply have to sign-up to Netflix using their name, e-mail or phone number, and password. They do not need to give their credit or debit card details to gain access. Once registered, users can stream the content on any device of their choice, including, PC, android or iOS devices, smart TV, and gaming console. However a single login ID cannot be shared and used for multiple streams. In addition, to ensure that users have the best streaming experience, the maximum number of people who can access this offer at any given time has been capped, although details of the same have not been made public. So during the Streamfest, if an user gets a message saying, “StreamFest is at capacity,” they will be notified later about when they can start streaming.
Netflix’s new promotional event is possibly to gain an extra edge over their competitors in the field like Amazon Prime, Disney+Hotstar, Voot and others. They have previously done other promotional events like the 30-days free trial and a mobile plan at Rs.199
