We all know how big the name Netflix is in the field of digital entertainment.

If we talk about digital entertainment websites worldwide Netflix is no 1 in terms of content they have on their site. No other site comes close to the number of movies and Tv shows Netflix has to offer.
Though Netflix is the best platform for viewing movies and Tv shows it’s not free. To use Netflix you have to take their subscription. But we are not here to talk about their subscription right! So let’s know how can you use this awesome platform for free for a specific amount of time in India.

On step one, you have to choose a plan for your subscription, Netflix offers 3 plans which are i) Basic at 500 Rs ii) Standard at 650 Rs and iii) Premium at 800 Rs. Select any one you like but in my opinion, choose the Premium plan because on that plan you can use Netflix simultaneously in 4 devices so it’s the best plan.
