Netflix India announced its free StreamFest on Thursday, where it will give access to all who are entering this event free access to watch all the blockbuster films, the biggest series, award-winning documentaries, and entertaining reality shows for two whole days between December 5 – December 6, 2020.
A blog post written by Monika Shergill, Vice President, Content, Netflix India mentioned that anyone who signs in during StreamFest gets one stream in standard definition — so, no one else can use the same login information to stream.
Anyone can sign up on their own. And once a user signs up via the Android app or a browser, they can use that login to watch Netflix on any device — smart TV, gaming console, iOS device (they can cast too).
The users can also access every feature that paid- Netflix members currently use and love — create Profiles (including Kids’ Profiles), set Parental Controls, browse Netflix in Hindi, add series or films to My List, watch with subtitles or dubs, use Smart Downloads on mobile, and see the Top 10 list (which gives you the 10 most popular movies and shows on Netflix in India).
Netflix said “this is because we want fans keen to try Netflix to experience it exactly the way our members do.” This fest starts from Dec. 5 at 12.01am and ends onDec. 6 at 11.59pm. The OTT giant also mentioned that to make sure everyone who comes in gets the best experience, they will have to limit the number of StreamFest viewers. So during StreamFest, if you see a message saying “StreamFest is at capacity”, don’t worry, the company will let you know when you can start streaming.
