Sign up for Netflix free 1 month
- Open the Netflix app
- Click ‘JOIN FOR A FREE MONTH’
- Sign Up to start your free month
On signup, you will be asked to provide your payment details. Netflix will only start billing you after the free 1 month so you will need to cancel the subscription before the free trial lapses, unless of course, you want to continue using the service. If using a virtual MasterCard from Ecocash then there’s nothing to worry about, the card will expire in 14 days before its billed.
