The streaming giant Netflix is free in India on Saturday and Sunday, December 5 and 6, for an event called Netflix StreamFest, as reported by NDTV Gadgets.

The India-only Netflix StreamFest has now begun and you sign up to access the full Netflix library free for 48 hours.

Your free access, however, will be limited to one Standard-Definition (SD) stream at a time. But almost everything else is how it is for Netflix subscribers. You can sign in, create different profiles, and add things to watch to ‘My List’. It’s like having the Netflix Rs. 499 ‘Basic Subscription’ pack free for two days.

Netflix is free for all new users in India starting today. After you sign up for free Netflix with an Internet browser by visiting, you can watch it anywhere, from your Android and iOS phones to your Smart TV and gaming consoles.

You can also watch it on any TV with a streaming device, such as a Chromecast or an Amazon Fire TV Stick, and on any internet browser. And the best part about signing up for free Netflix during the StreamFest is that you don’t have to provide any payment details, such as a credit or a debit card number. All you need is a name, an email address or a phone number, and a password.

According to Netflix, the response has been so high that users may now be getting error messages when trying to access StreamFest. The company tweeted, “Due to the overwhelming response to StreamFest, you might be seeing the message “StreamFest is at capacity”.” However, this is nothing to worry about, because Netflix also added that if you share your email ID or phone number, it will let people know within a week about when they can get two days of free Netflix.
