Netflix Officially Launches Free Streaming Plan

Netflix has officially launched its first-of-its-kind free streaming plan in Kenya.

According to reports, the tier offers approximately one-fourth of the titles available for paid subscribers and is currently only available on Android phones. Unlike the paid tiers, however, subscribers do not have the option to download titles or cast the app on TVs.

“If you’ve never watched Netflix before — and many people in Kenya haven’t — this is a great way to experience our service,” Cathy Conk, director of product innovation at Netflix, wrote. “And if you like what you see, it’s easy to upgrade to one of our paid plans so you can enjoy our full catalog on your TV or laptop as well.”

A credit card is not required; subscribers only need to enter their email address, birthdate and a password. “Then you can sit back and watch many of Netflix’s most popular series and films, as well as enjoy our personalized recommendations, parental controls, and profiles (including kids),” Conk added.

In related news, Netflix came home with more Emmys than HBO for the first time in history.
