You can get the Netflix app on your tablet or smartphone too and you get a test month where you can check out everything the service has to offer for free, before engaging in a long and expensive relationship with it.

 

You don’t get regional restrictions on content, which means that you can access anything the US gets, for example. You will be able to browse through thousands of hours of licensed series and content and original Netflix content, and more will be added in 2016 as well.
