To start your free month, simply go to, choose a plan from Basic, Standard, and Premium, and then follow the instruction to enter your email, password and so forth. Generally, most people's choices should be Premium, since it will provide you with the maximum privilege to begin the wonderful watching period.

Even though you won't be charged during your free trial, you are required to select a payment method. Because Netflix states, they ask for a payment method to ensure users don't have any interruption in service after the free trial.
