Rarely are the words Netflix and ‘free’ used together.
Netflix has decided to offer its original film To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before for free to anyone with an Internet connection, as a way to promote its sequel, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, which comes out tomorrow.
People interested in watching the 2018 teen romcom for free don’t need to be a Netflix subscriber to do so, they simply need to visit the film’s official page on Netflix, and they’ll be able to stream To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before in its entirety with no catch.
It’s a smart, yet rare move by Netflix, who almost never offers any content to non-subscribers.
The sequel to the now free-to-watch film, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, will be available tonight at midnight, California time, when it’s officially released for streaming on February 12th.
To All The Boys: Always And Forever, which has already been filmed and is in post-production, will eventually be the third and final title in this confirmed trilogy.
If you’re too broke, uninterested, or on the fence about becoming a Netflix subscriber, or you just want to watch a pretty well reviewed movie, perhaps this is a promotion you’d be interested in.
Be careful, it might convince you to subscribe so you can watch that sequel tomorrow.
Netflix hasn’t said whether the movie will stay free forever, but we wouldn’t be surprised, since it’s a pretty good way to suck people into the company’s first real original film trilogy.
If you’re still undecided on whether this free movie would be worth your time, here’s Netflix’s official plot summary and trailer for To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.
When her secret love letters somehow get mailed to each of her five crushes, Lara Jean finds her quiet high school existence turned upside down.
