Netflix: No more free trials in the U.S.

Having previously eliminated the free trial option for new customers in other territories, Netflix has confirmed it is killing the offer in the U.S. too.
For years, Netflix would tempt customers with 30 days of full access to its entire library. Potential customers could cancel before paying a monthly subscription fee for the world's largest streaming service. However, with more than 200 million subscribers, Netflix has decided to pull the plug on the freebie.

"We're looking at different marketing promotions in the U.S. to attract new members and give them a great Netflix experience", a Netflix spokesperson said while confirming the reports, according to Reuters.

Competing services have started to eliminate similar options. Disney halted the free trial for its Disney+ service back in June.

Netflix does still offer its free portal for potential customers to watch some of its original content without paying.

With all the recent controversy the last thing Netflix needs is to make it harder for potential new customers.
