Netflix offers a one month free trial if you are a new member that allows you to watch streaming movies on your computer, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Wii, as well as receive DVDs and Blu-ray discs in the mail. You must provide credit card information to start the free trial. Signing up for the free trial will not charge your credit card, but you must make sure to cancel your membership before the trial period is over if you wish to avoid being charged for a monthly membership.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open your Internet browser and visit the Netflix home page at

  2. 2

    Type in your e-mail and preferred password for your Netflix trial account in the fields under "Start Your 1 Month Free Trial" on the home page and press "Enter" or click "Continue."

  3. 3

    Click in the box next to "Add unlimited DVDs by mail for an even broader selection" if you wish your trial membership to include DVDs. Leave it unchecked if you are only interested in a trial that includes the streaming content available on Netflix.

  4. 4

    Enter your credit card information in the boxes provided or click the radio button next to the "PayPal" icon and enter your PayPal information. You will not be charged when signing up for the free trial, but if you do not cancel before your 30-day trial period is over, Netflix will charge your credit card or PayPal account at the regular rate for the monthly membership plan you selected.

  5. 5

    Click in the box next to "I agree to the above conditions and the Terms of Use, including our Privacy Policy" to place a check mark in it.

    Click the "Start Membership" button.

    Log in to your Netflix account before your 30-day trial ends and click the "Your Account & Help" link at the top right of the page. Click the "Cancel membership" link.

  8. 8

    Place a check mark in the box next to "I accept and understand the terms of cancellation and want to cancel my account" by clicking in it.

  9. 9

    Click the "Complete Cancellation" button to finish cancelling your account before the end of the trial period. Your cancellation will be effective immediately.
