Netflix Military Discount

Netflix is one of the most influential companies in the world and has completely revolutionized the way entertainment is presented.

Along with streaming a library of films and TV programs from other networks, Netflix is also expanding on its own in-house productions – several of which are critically renowned.

Netflix has close to 150 million paid subscriptions, 60 million of which derive from the United States.

Can you get a Netflix military discount on your subscription?

Netflix doesn’t necessarily offer a specific military discount, however, there are other ways to get a special deal on the monthly subscription.

In the article we will examine the various ways to save on Netflix.

Netflix Military Discount – Why doesn’t one exist?

Netflix has completely changed the game in the world of entertainment.

At first, it was a discounted way of receiving DVDs for rent through the mail with no additional postage to send or receive a new DVD.

However, Netflix has adapted into much more of a streaming service that is also starting to produce some of the best programs on TV.

So why no military discount?

We could begin with the subscription prices.

Netflix subscriptions start at $8.99 per month and only reach the highest price of $15.99 per month.

It is literally within just about everyone’s monthly budget so the demand for Netflix to reduce costs even lower for military, or anyone else, is understandably not necessary.

However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider a 30-day free trial if you are new to Netflix.

Try Netflix for 30 Days – Completely Free

Netflix has long since advertised a no strings attached, first 30 days trial to find out if you like the streaming service or not.

It is simple to get started with the Netflix free 30-day trial.

Netflix will even email you three days before the conclusion of 30 days to remind you the free trial is about to end, as well as giving you the option of backing out or continuing with service.

The first 30 days are absolutely free – no questions asked!

There are no charges to your account before 30 days expire, however, you will need to provide the details of your credit card at the time of sign-up.

There are absolutely zero commitments during the 30-day free trial with Netflix.

You can cancel at any time by doing so through your account setting or contacting Netflix directly at 1-866-579-7172.

Netflix Streaming Plans – Pick the Right Plan for Your Needs

Netflix, like other streaming providers (Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc) is very loose in terms of commitment.

You do not need to sign-up for one year or two year contracts like most cable and satellite TV providers.

There are no hidden fees or charges for canceling early.

You simply get to decide how long you want your Netflix account with no strings attached.

Additionally, you can upgrade or downgrade your subscription at any time.

  • Basic Plan ($8.99): HD is not available and you can only watch on one screen at the same time. However, it is a very affordable way to watch on your laptop, TV, phone, or tablet for single users.
  • Standard Plan ($12.99): The standard plan is an upgrade with HD available. You can also watch on two different screens at the same time for multiple viewers. The standard plan includes the same access to all the unlimited movies and TV shows of the Basic plan.
  • Premium Plan ($15.99): The best subscription from Netflix includes ultra-HD and up to four screens for viewing different shows. It is a great plan for families as everyone can watch what they want simultaneously. 

Please note that HD and ultra-HD is subject to your internet provider as well as capabilities of your device(s).

HD content is not always available on all programs, even if you have the capabilities for HD or ultra-HD.

FAQ – Netflix Military Discount

Even though Netflix doesn’t have a military discount per say, you can still save on the first 30 days of a new subscription, and receive access to thousands of TV shows and movies through one of three different types of subscriptions.

Considering you will spend less than $16 per month (even on the highest plan) is enough to warrant Netflix as it can potentially eliminate your need for cable TV.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the Netflix service and subscription plans:

Do other streaming services offer a military discount?

Netflix regularly competes with Amazon Prime and Hulu for subscriptions.

It is not uncommon for American households to have one, two, or even all three subscriptions these days.

Does Hulu or Amazon Prime have a military discount?

Amazon Prime is like Netflix. There is no direct military discount.

However, Hulu subscribers can potentially save 10% off a monthly bill through ShopMyExchange.com.

What streaming service will save me the most amount of money?

All three primary streaming services are extremely cheap.

However, if you want to pick one Hulu is hard to beat.

Amazon Prime is part streaming service, part subscription to receive better deals and shipping on Amazon orders.

Netflix is extremely dependable, and arguably has the best original programming of the three.

Regardless, Hulu plans start at just $5.99 per month.

You can also get live TV and Hulu for $44.99 per month, which is far better than what most cable TV providers can guarantee even with a promotional first time offer.
