Netflix is free to all new users in India starting today. After you sign in to Netflix for free at Netflix.com/StreamFest using an Internet browser, you can watch it anywhere from your Android and iOS phones to your smart TV and game consoles.

The best part about signing up for free to Netflix during StreamFest is that you don’t have to provide payment details like a credit or debit card number. All you need is a name, an email address or a telephone number and a password.
According to Netflix, the response has been so high that users may now get error messages when trying to access StreamFest. The Company tweeted“Because of the overwhelming response to StreamFest, the message ‘StreamFest is at full capacity’ may appear.” But that’s nothing to worry about, as Netflix has added that if you share your email ID or phone number, users will be notified within a week of when they can get Netflix for free for two days.
