Netflix is available for any TV, no matter how old, and the best part is you can start streaming movies on-demand today - completely free.

Strictly speaking, Netflix is available at three price points: it starts at £5.99 per month for the basic package that includes the ability to stream unlimited films on any device you like, but only one person can watch at a time and there's no HD content; to get Ultra-HD playback and the ability to stream on up to four devices there's the top-end Premium package at £9.99; while the £7.99 package offers a happy middle ground with HD streaming on up to two devices.

For what you get in return even £9.99 per month doesn't sound like an unreasonable outlay, but we much prefer the sound of free.

All customers who subscribe to Netflix get their first month free, and you can cancel at any time so you never need pay a penny.

All you need to supply is your email address, a password, and payment details. And once your free month is up, there is nothing to stop your partner signing up for another free month - just sign up again for another free month. It's a bit naughty, but completely legal.

And once you've tried Netflix, why not try a month's free Amazon Prime Video, or a two-week NowTV Cinema trial for even more free films. It makes sense to try all three before you make an eventual decision on which you decide to stick with (if any).
