When Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph founded Netflix in 1997, they would’ve never thought that their company would dominate the streaming service industry one day.
Undoubtedly, Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services today because it completely revolutionized the way people watch television.
What started as just a DVD rental service quickly became the subject that was the pioneer of modern video-on-demand streaming.
As of this moment, Netflix currently has 214 million subscribers worldwide. Even with the Covid-19 pandemic affecting the world, the service still managed to add 16 million new subscribers in 2020 alone.
Netflix offers its services in almost every country with just a few exceptions, such as China, North Korea, Crimea, and Syria, for various reasons. You can also watch your favorite shows and movies on almost every device/operating system.
With so much to offer, you’d assume that Netflix would cost you a lot of money. But, here’s the good part, it doesn’t. Its basic, standard, and premium subscriptions cost about just $8.99, $13.99, and $17.99, respectively.
Still, there’s a way that you can enjoy this wonderful streaming service for absolutely free on your handheld devices, especially Android. You heard us right. You can get a free trial for Netflix and stream your favorite shows and movies without paying a single penny.
Popular devices supported by Netflix include Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, Firestick, Roku, Chromebook, Android TV Box, Smart TV, digital media player, and more.
Netflix’s digital content library houses 4593 movies and 1157 TV shows from various genres. This content includes both: in-house production and also the content that is licensed from different production studios.
So in today’s blog, we will tell you how to watch Netflix without paying a single penny on your Android device in the United States.
Watching Netflix on Android for free
To watch Netflix on your Android device for free in the United States, you first need a Netflix free trial subscription.
Just follow the steps mentioned below to acquire a Netflix free trial subscription.
- Open your browser and visit Netflix.com or go to the Netflix app on an Android device.
- Input your email address in the blank field next to “Get Started.”
- Next, enter your credit card information and other details. (Don’t worry, you won’t be charged).
- That’s it. You have successfully created your Netflix free trial account.
You can now download the Netflix application (if you haven’t already) from Google Play Store and use the Netflix trial account to stream your favorite shows and movies.
You just have to ensure that you cancel the subscription before the 30-day trial period ends. Otherwise, your credit card will be debited for the subscription price.
The only downside to this trick is that you will get 30-day access to Netflix on a particular email address. But what if you wish to extend your Netflix trial account?
Extending your Netflix free trial account for Android in the United States
There are a couple of methods for extending your Netflix free trial accounts.
Sign up again for Netflix free trial account
Once your existing Netflix free trial comes to an end, you can sign up for another free trial account using a completely different email address.
But you have to be careful as Netflix can easily connect your accounts to you, so you better use a virtual private network to change your actual IP address with each new sign-up.
This way, you can acquire as many Netflix free trial accounts as you want as long as you use different email addresses and payment information.
Netflix customer service
You can also contact Netflix’s customer support service on 1 (866) 579-7172 and ask them to extend your Netflix free trial subscription.
You can give them why you were occupied with some other stuff and couldn’t enjoy the free trial completely. Then, if you are lucky, they might extend your trial account.
Using a VPN for Netflix on Android in the United States
As you know, Netflix distributes its content library based on geo-location. It means that it isn’t necessarily for people of the United States to get access to the same movies and shows available to viewers in the United Kingdom.
So how do you ensure that you can get access to any TV show or movie available anywhere?
The solution is very simple. Use a virtual private network to bypass Netflix’s content library geo-restriction.
A virtual private network replaces your actual location and IP address with its network IP address. Once you are connected to a VPN, your actual location and IP address are completely hidden, and you will be only emitting the VPN location and IP address.
When you access Netflix with your new, different, or fake VPN IP address, its IP detection mechanism will see you coming from a different country and will allow you to stream that country’s content library.
How to watch Netflix on Android using a VPN?
