Wondering what you'll be doing tomorrow and likely the foreseeable future? Netflix is finally here in Egypt and just in time for Christmas! We're walking you through how to decode all the steps standing in your way of having a 'Netflix and Chill' marathon right now.
"Netflix and chill?" We can hear the Egyptian teenagers all over the country using this very pickup line as we write this, because Netflix is officially online in Egypt. We've been talking about it for two months now, and we're seriously thinking this is the best news since Toaster Strudle. Everyone can happily flip off the 'Not Available in Your Country' page, that has been coming up in the past years, whenever we tried to sneak our way through the website. Wait, does this mean we're going to become an ever fatter-lazier-stupider nation, now that all of our most beloved TV Shows and films are - legally and exclusively - only at the nimble reach of our finger-taps? Meh, who cares! Prepare the mountains of popcorn, forget about Finals Week stress, and drown yourself in Arrow, Gotham, and lots of 'chilling'.
However, there is this one little bugger through the road to paradise: You need a credit card. And since not everyone who will be registering are proud owners of the golden plastic, you're going to have to improvise. Netflix aren't asking you to hand in your money right away, but are giving you a teaser first month for FREE! And then charging you per their normal rates of $7.99-$9.99-$11.99 monthly afterwards.
We're here to let you in on all Netflix-y secrets, and how you can go about to make the most out of your subscription with the cheapest rates. Yes, we've got your screenshots and everything.
NOW YOU'RE TALKING.
Boring part. Continue. Continue. Continue. Oh did we just agree to pay more money? Fuck it. Continue.
Create your account and select a very unique password that - by all means - should not involve your birthday. *The E-mail used in the picture displayed is only a mere creation. Kindly do not be stupid enough to try to hack an imaginary username.
And then this comes up. What the actual fuck.
Okay it's breathing again. Great! Wonder what particular movie/series should we spend the night binging on?
Mr. Travolta doesn't seem too happy by this awfully long pause. Not sure whether we should be blaming Netflix for a lousy connection speed, or blaming our network providers.
OOOH SOMETHING'S HAPPENING.
Still sitting here wondering why we didn't just watch the film illegally online? We guess we feel less guilty.
That's a wrap. Feel free to hop on to whichever subscription fits your liking - and your pocket money. As for the credit card-less who borrowed their parents/friends/stole it temporarily to register, and aren't sure they can go through with an actual transaction, we're happy to tell you that you can easily switch off your membership through the settings. For the sake of Netflix, we're going to let you figure this one out on your own.
