Have you finally decided to subscribe to Netflix, but you still don’t know which formula is best for you and at what price? Here are our recommendations according to your wishes and your budget.
Netflix is constantly in the news. Between a new price increase during the month of August, experiments related to account sharing and the upcoming implementation of an ad-integrated subscription for less, the American streaming service never stops talking about it.
The truth is that with the proliferation of streaming services, it is necessary to carefully choose your subscription level according to your desires (movies and series) and especially your wallet, since the monthly bill risks rising rapidly. Fortunately, it is also possible to lower prices with a few tricks, since Internet operators like bundled offers with a key subscription. Keep in mind that if Netflix is the most popular streaming service on the market, it is also the most expensive.

How to subscribe to Netflix?
If the prices are set from the official Netflix platform, there are still several ways to lower the bill and specifically through the offers of Internet box operators.
Subscribe to Netflix from the website or app
If before it was still possible to take advantage of a 30-day trial period by subscribing to Netflix, this is unfortunately no longer the case today. On the other hand, it is quite possible that you will be refunded for your subscription within 7 days. This is the legal right of withdrawal, but you still pay the first monthly installment. So remember to contact Netflix customer service within the first 7 days of your subscription if you are not satisfied.
To subscribe to the service, nothing could be easier. Go to the official website and enter your email address. You can also go through this link which makes things even easier.
Netflix accepts payments via bank details, PayPal or gift code if you have one.
