The Netflix Gift Card is Your Next Unwanted / Last Minute Birthday Gift Idea

By James O Malley on at

Now you can binge watch without having to sign up to regular payments, as Netflix has launched PAYG top-ups for its service.

Our pals at TechRadar got the scoop. It appears as though it will work in much the same way as a mobile phone top-up. You buy (or receive as a gift) either £15, £25 or £50 credit which is added to your Netflix account, and then you can spend it whichever Netflix package you like. As TechRadar notes, this means you can use it to pay for regular Netflix, or the slightly pricier multi-screened or 4K versions.

So if you're missing out on Daredevil and Orange Is The New Black, this could be just the excuse you need without signing your life away. It could be good for Netflix too, as it could conceivably enable parents to grant their kids Netflix without having to hand over the family credit card. [TechRadar]
