Netflix Releases Select Shows and Movies for Free

More at-home content.

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.
