Creating a Netflix account is easy. Keep your credit card on hand, because you’ll need it.
Go to www.netflix.com in your web browser and select Start Your Free Month from the homepage.
You can sign up through your Facebook account (the advantage to this is that you’ll be able to discover new shows by seeing what your friends are watching) or by entering an email and password. Select Register.
Select the type of subscription you want (one screen, two screens or four screens) and the method of payment you’ll be using. Netflix accepts all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX) as well as PayPal.
Once you click Start Membership, you’ll be redirected to the homepage, where you can browse TV shows and movies to instantly begin streaming.
Whether or not you intend to continue your subscription, you’ll still get the first month of your subscription free, and will not be billed for that month.
