Netflix Will Show Off Stranger Things, Bird Box, and More for Free

Although it may seem like everyone on Earth has their own Netflix account, there are still a few people out there who aren’t subscribed (or are just borrowing login credentials from someone else). The streaming giant will try to draw in new paying customers by giving them access to a few of its best titles for free.

According to Variety, if you go to, you’ll be able to see a few Netflix titles without having to log-in to an account or throw a card down for a free trial. The current selection includes an episode of the heartwrenching racial drama When They See Us, the meme-worthy Bird Box, and the pilot of the tremendously popular Stranger Things.

But before you pop popcorn and prepare for a binge session, you should know that the free website only provides the first episodes of each series. While the movies are available in full, you’ll need a login if you want to see the entirety of When They See Us or all three seasons of Stranger Things so far. And even those pilot episodes may not stay there forever.

According to the FAQ on Netflix’s free website, “the selection may change from time to time.”  So, if you’re unsure about joining this streaming behemoth, but are interested in any of the titles mentioned, now’s a good time to check them out for the low, low price of absolutely nothing on,. While the site may not make you a subscriber, you’ll at least be able to understand all the Bird Box memes that I tweet.
