Netflix is making some of its shows available for free on YouTube, in a move to make its content more available during the coronavirus pandemic.
Yes, you can now watch Netflix for free, on YouTube. But before you get too excited, I shall let you know that Netflix has not added its most popular shows like Stranger Things or Tiger King. The platform has chosen to make educational content its focus on the free online video sharing platform.
Netflix is making this content available for free as many of us remain under quarantine or stay at home orders. However, this decision could also be a good marketing move for Netflix. More available content means more publicity for the platform and it could lead to more subscribers in the near future.
Among the content that is shared on the dedicated YouTube channel feature fan-favorite documentary “Our Planet,” thought-provoking “13th” and two of my favorites: “Abstract” which dives in the art of design, and “Explained,” the Vox series that digs into today’s world.
Here is an exhaustive of all list of the Netflix programs that are currently available on YouTube:
