Netflix has removed the option for potential subscribers in the United States to test the service with a free trial, the company confirmed to The Verge.
The company started phasing out the option for US-based subscribers this month, but has spent the last couple of years phasing out the option in a number of countries around the world. To replace the free trial, Netflix is introducing new ways to try and attract potential subscribers, including posting some educational content on YouTube for free and other forms of content sampling.
“We’re looking at different marketing promotions in the US to attract new members,” a Netflix spokesperson told The Verge.
