Netflix confirms one-weekend free trials

Called a StreamFest

Published

on

Throughout the year, Netflix has released its exclusive content for absolutely free. Back in September, the streaming platform launched a “watch free” page with a few of its well-known titles for the unsubscribed. Now, the company is branching out even further with one-weekend free trials.

Officially called a StreamFest, the one-weekend event will make the entire platform absolutely free for non-subscribers. As a free trial should work, users don’t need to input the payment details to access the content.

Though officially unannounced, Protocol spotted the upcoming event in the Android app’s coding. According to the code, the StreamFest is scheduled for December 4 in India.

Immediately after the event, Netflix confirmed the plans as a way to “attract new members and give them a great Netflix experience.” Unfortunately, the Netflix spokesperson did not share anything beyond the confirmation.

However, the leaked code is enough to reveal the event’s payment-free system. Additionally, it might be a ticketed event. Or, at the very least, an event that will limit participants. A line in the code informs users that “Netflix StreamFest is at capacity.”

Other than that, not much else is known. Besides making the entire library free, the platform can also launch exclusive content during the event, creating a teaser for any potential customers.

After India, Netflix might bring the event to other countries, especially to new or saturated markets. With everyone still stuck at home, the streaming platform is facing a huge potential market for growing its subscriber base.

Netflix faces charges for sexualizing children

Over controversial film “Cuties”

Published

on

Contrary to what you might expect, Netflix’s most controversial film this year is not The Social Dilemma. Released on Netflix this year, Cuties, a French film about 11-year old girls, sparked a larger wave of controversy since its release. Now, Netflix faces charges for sexualizing children.

A grand jury in Texas recently indicted Netflix for showing Cuties on its platform. According to Texas Representative Matt Schaefer, the film “depicts lewd exhibition of [the] pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age which appeals to the prurient interest of sex.”

Texas’s allegations stem from the film’s poster controversy back in August. To promote the film, Netflix used a poster depicting the child actresses posing like a sexualized pop band. Notably, the film’s original French poster was more innocuous, lacking Netflix’s sexual overtones.

The film itself is “a social commentary against the sexualization of young children,” as explained by Netflix in a statement to Reuters. “This charge is without merit and we stand by the film.”

For its part, the platform took down their poster and apologized for the blunder. Regardless, numerous pundits and governments across the globe have rallied against and banned the film from showing. Before the poster controversy in August, the film won an award during its premiere at January’s Sundance Film Festival.
