Netflix Now Does Gift Cards in the UK
You can now give the gift of binge watching as Netflix is selling its very own gift cards through a number of UK retailer chains.
They include £15, £25 and £50 options – the value of which can be put towards the cost of a Netflix subscription as and when desired and this can be enjoyed on PC or laptop as well as Android and iOS tablets and smartphones and a number of smart TVs and games consoles in standard and high definition as well as 4K (price plans vary depending on video quality and number of devices used per account).
This offers an alternative to committing to a monthly rolling contract where the fee gets deducted automatically from a direct debit account or PayPal unless you choose to cancel.
For example sake, you could use a Netflix gift card today to pay for a month of service, binge watch some top telly and exclusive content such as Daredevil, House of Cards or Orange is the New Black. Then, when you’re done, wait a bit and use some more of your remaining funds a few months down the line when the new season of From Dusk Till Dawn begins.
So the gift card idea is ideal for those who prefer to dip in and out of Netflix – rather than needing it always there and not always using it to the fullest. We ourselves know how easy it is to let the £6.99 bill go out the door every month even during periods when we might not be using the streaming service as much as justifies the cost of having it. But of course if you are an avid Netflix subscriber and a true telly addict then you can also put a gift card towards the continuing monthly expense.
Bringing Netflix to the high street is another sign that more and more people are relying on on-demand TV over the offerings available through Freeview, Sky and Virgin TV and Netflix gift cards will be found at Argos, Asda, Currys, GAME, Morrison’s, PC World and WH Smith before appearing in more UK stores in the near future.
