NEWS: Critics Without Netflix Accounts Will Get Free Ones to Access Screeners
Changes are coming to Netflix — at least for those who write about it. Journalists and critics who review the streaming giant’s ever-expanding library will now do so in a new way, which will require them to have a Netflix account rather than sign into a dedicated press site.
The news first made the rounds on Twitter, when journalists who’d accessed their Netflix Media Center accounts received a note about the coming change. This led to the perception that those without existing Netflix accounts will now have to pay for one in order to review the streaming service’s upcoming movies and TV shows, but IndieWire has been told that this is not the case: Journalists will receive complimentary subscription codes for accounts that will allow them to access this advance content in addition to everything else in the Netflix catalogue.
