Netflix is one of the top stream platforms around the world with about 200 million subscribers. The demand for its movies and original shows has gained more popularity among users and has helped the movie streaming platform increase in popularity even though the cost of subscription has increased. When compared with cable television, Netflix offers a fairly cheaper price although users on a budget might not be able to afford to pay for their subscription. What should they do in such a case, stop streaming on Netflix? that doesn’t sound too nice. That is why I will be sharing with you some tips you can use to continue to stream Netflix for free even though you don’t have an active subscription, and this type is completely legal.
Share Netflix subscription with friends or family
The basic plan on Netflix does not allow users to stream more than one show or movie at a time. But if you have a friend or family member that uses either the standard or premium subscription, you can request to use their accounts to access Netflix. The standard subscription allows you to stream up to two movies or shows at a time and on different devices while the Premium allows up to four streaming at concurrently and o different devices as well. If they trust you enough, they can decide to share with you their Netflix account details and you also can join in streaming without interfering with whatever it is they are watching. Some may not want to give you the access but you may negotiate with them to pay part of the subscription and if you would ask me, I would say that sounds like a good deal.
