Want to sign up for a free Netflix trial but don’t have a credit card? Discover how you can here.

The international expansion of Netflix brought the joy of online streaming TV and movies to 130 more countries, the Philippines being one of them. Filipinos can now watch more than 100 million hours of their favourite TV shows and films on most Internet-connected devices.

If you’re not sold on the idea and want to try it out or are looking to save on subscription costs, Netflix Philippines is offering a free one-month trial to let you enjoy the sheer pleasure of binge-watching a series or movie without having to fork out fees.

Once the month-long trial ends, you’ll be charged subscription rates depending on gadget type, streaming quality and how many screens you wish to view Netflix from.
