Netflix tests the feature to limit password sharing comes as binge-watching skyrocketed since the start of the pandemic.
Missing estimates for new subscribers during the Covid pandemic, US-based content-streaming platform Netflix has announced that it will host a ‘StreamFest’ in India, that will allow non-subscribers to experience the service for free during the weekend. Netflix StreamFest kicks off December 5 at 12:01 am and ends December 6 at 11:59 pm. All a non user needs to do is set a reminder for the StreamFest on http://netflix.com/StreamFest by signing up with their name, email/phone number and a password and start streaming without any payment. In its effort to provide great quality service to all viewers, Netflix will be limiting the number of free viewers and if users see a “StreamFest is at capacity” message, Netflix will let them know when it is good to stream again.
Popular streaming service Netflix rolled out its new TV channel called Netflix Direct in France. Netflix Direct will be available to Netflix streaming subscribers in select areas in France, with plans to expand through December and will provide content from its existing streaming library in a linear format.
