If you’re considering renting movies online, a good way to test the waters is to sign up for the Netflix free trial. In this article, I’ll discuss the fine print of the free one month membership, plus I’ll go over some of the basic information regarding Netflix, the leading online movie rental service in the United States.
Free Trial Limitation
First off, it should be noted that if you or any other member of your household has been a Netflix subscriber within the last 12 months, you won’t be eligible to take part in the free trial. Furthermore, those taking part in the free trial are only allowed to have one movie out at a time, although you may also watch an unlimited number of streaming movies via the Netflix website.
What Netflix Offers
Netflix has a library of over 100,000 movies and television shows on DVD and Blu-ray disc (subscribers must pay an extra $2 per month to rent Blu-ray movies). Depending on your subscription plan, you can have as few as two or as many as eight movies out at a time. These DVDs will be shipped to your home, and returns are made by simply dropping them back in your mailbox (postage is pre-paid). As soon as Netflix receives a movie that you’ve returned, the next film in your queue will be sent out. Netflix has over 100 shipping points across the United States, meaning that 97% of their customers will receive their next selection one day after it has been mailed out.
