Netflix Launches a Free Section with No Subscription Required

Netflix is now offering free access to popular titles including Stranger Things, The Two Popes, and Grace and Frankie. The new free section does not require a Netflix account. Just head to the Netflix Watch Free section to get started.

A support page for the free content notes that the titles are available to watch on web browsers and Android devices, but iOS devices are not supported.

“We’re looking at different marketing promotions to attract new members and give them a great Netflix experience,” Netflix told Gadgets 360 in a statement confirming the addition of the free section.

The section includes some of the most popular Netflix Originals titles, including full movies and the first episode of some TV shows. Here’s the full list of free content.

  • Stranger Things
  • Murder Mystery
  • Elite
  • The Boss Baby: Back in Business
  • Bird Box
  • When They See Us
  • Love is Blind
  • The Two Popes
  • Our Planet
  • Grace and Frankie

Netflix has experimented with free content in the past. Most recently, the service made the movie To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before free to non-subscribers to attract new customers before releasing the film’s sequels. The Netflix YouTube channel has also been home to some free content, including a set of documentaries to bring educational content to students and teachers soon after schools were closed for COVID-19.
