Nokia to offer free year of Netflix to boost Lumia sales


One of the oldest tactics to get people to buy something is to give away something for free along with it. Nokia will be starting a similar promotion with their Lumia phones on Vodafone in the UK. The Financial Times reports that Nokia is working to give free Netflix to Lumia buyers.

If you buy a Nokia Lumia from Vodafone you will be eligible to redeem a free year of Netflix. A whole 12 months of free streaming. The deal works out well for both Nokia and Netflix. Nokia is trying to expand the Lumia line, and Netflix is trying to expand popularity in the UK. Win/win.

Would a free year of Netflix persuade you to buy a new phone?

    Probably not. But it would push me to do it if I was already really close to buying one.
