Netflix to offer free trial in India as sign-ups slow

Asia-Pacific contributes most quarterly subscriptions as revenue jumps 66%

PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Netflix is planning to offer a free weekend trial in India, the company said during an earnings call on Tuesday, when the streaming pioneer reported slower third-quarter subscription growth after a record number of subscribers had signed up in the first half of 2020.

The 48-hour trial will come to India later this year, and there are plans to bring the same campaign to other regions.
