Netflix has quietly updated its subscription strategy in the United States and is no longer offering free 30-day trial subscriptions to new users. A spokesperson for the streaming service confirmed this news to EW this week.
If you visit Netflix’s online help center, it coincides with the announcement, stating “Free trials are not available, but you can still sign up and take advantage of all Netflix has to offer. There are no contracts, no cancellation fees, and no commitments. You have the freedom to change your plan or cancel online at any time if you decide Netflix isn’t for you.”
Disney+ is another major streaming platform that had ended free trials earlier this year prior to the release of Hamilton. Their offering was only a 7-day free trial, however.
