There are reports of a new offer circulating on the internet saying that Netflix is offering a free one-year subscription due to the pandemic.

The offer usually says something like

 “Due to the CoronaVirus pandemic worldwide, Netflix is ​giving some free passes for their platform during the period of isolation"

And then it'll urge you to hurry to the website link provided because the offer will expire soon.

No, the "free Netflix for a year" offer is NOT real.

It is yet another scam from people who are just plain inconsiderate and want to mess with the world.

Do not click any link on social media or email associated with anything like this.

Just a fair warning, many scammers are now using the Netflix brand to try and steal your money,

Please be aware of emails and text messages from scammers posing as Netflix representatives urging you to update your account.

Don't give them any information, don't even respond.

You can get more information over at snopes.com.

Please stay safe this holiday season.

Happy holidays from everyone at Townsquare Media San Angelo.
