No subscription? No problem. Netflix just announced a “watch free” section.

Of course, it’s a ploy to lure in new subscribers. The free content contains exclusively Netflix originals. But hey, free content is free content!

The downside? The Watch Free section can’t be accessed on the mobile app or on any iOS browsers. So, some people may have to work a little harder to stream for free.

Check out the list of feature films and TV series you can watch for free now below. (Netflix notes these titles may change in the future.)


Only two feature films appear on the Watch Free page. However, they’re two of Netflix’s most popular ones.
