According to an article from The Next Web, this change was originally noticed by Phil Swann, the TV Answer Man. Along with this, Netflix itself said in the help center page that free trials are no longer available.

But, it’s still unclear what the reason for this change was. Some speculate that it’s because of the platforms recent growth. Meanwhile, others see this as the streaming platform’s way of negating free trial abusers.

In fact, some of these abusers have even used Netflix’s free trial offering as a way to make their own business. However, Netflix has yet to comment on the reason for the shift.

So, if you’re excited to watch exclusive Netflix’s top hits such as The Haunting of Bly Manor, Tiger King, or Emily In Paris, you have to pay up or get out. But, this business decision has existed throughout history.

Often times, free trials are just ran for a limited time to grab customer attention. However, once the company or a product has reached a large enough customer base, then they would likely cancel the free trial subscriptions.
