StreamFest: Netflix to be free for two days in India


Mumbai: Netflix is hosting StreamFest in India for two days. This means anyone in India can watch all the blockbuster films, the biggest series, award-winning documentaries, and entertaining reality shows for two whole days. The StramFest will be held between December 5 12.01am to December 6 11.59pm.

Pick from some of the biggest Indian movies and series: experience the anticipation of “What happens in 25 days?” in Sacred Games, go on a mad ride with the newly released Ludo, and be inspired by the Telugu hit Miss India. Or pick international movies and series: feel the adrenaline rush of Extraction; and be immersed in a crime drama with the Spanish series, La Casa de Papel. Your kids will also love our very own Mighty Little Bheem, and be able to choose their own adventure with the interactive Boss Baby: Get that Baby.

Visit (or download the Android app), sign up with your name, email or phone number, and password — and start streaming. It is completely free; no credit or debit card or payment needed.

From November 20, you can also visit and set a reminder with your email or phone number. And the streamer will let you know as soon as StreamFest is live.

Anyone who signs in during StreamFest gets one stream in standard definition — so, no one else can use the same login information to stream. But, hey, it’s free, so anyone can sign up on their own. And once you sign up via the Android app or a browser, you can use that login to watch Netflix on any device — smart TV, gaming console, iOS device (yes, you can cast too). You can also access every feature that our members currently use and love — create Profiles (including Kids’ Profiles), set Parental Controls, browse Netflix in Hindi, add series or films to My List, watch with subtitles or dubs, use Smart Downloads on mobile, and see the Top 10 list (which gives you the 10 most popular movies and shows on Netflix in India). “This is because we want fans keen to try Netflix to experience it exactly the way our members do,” says Monika Shergill, Vice President, Content, Netflix India.

“You only get free Netflix for two days. And to make sure everyone who comes in gets the best experience, we will have to limit the number of StreamFest viewers. So during StreamFest, if you see a message saying “StreamFest is at capacity”, don’t worry. We’ll let you know when you can start streaming,” she added.
