Viewers can choose from a selection of educational content including nature documentary Our Planet, investigative series Explained and design deep-dive Abstract: The Art of Design.
Netflix isn’t the first entity to encourage self-isolation with the release of free content. Earlier this month, HBO made 500 hours of select shows and movies free to access without a subscription and back in March, Vogue Italia opened its online archives to the public.
