Netflix has uploaded 10 documentaries, series and short films on YouTube to boost online learning and “help teachers around the world” during the coronavirus lockdown, the streaming platform said in a press statement on Friday.
The move ensures that non-Netflix subscribers will now be able to access the films through YouTube. “For many years, Netflix has allowed teachers to screen documentaries in their classrooms,” Netflix said in a statement. “However, this isn’t possible with schools closed.”
The list of films that can be viewed on YouTube for a limited period include:
