Netflix offers free documentaries on YouTube

For educational purposes, Netflix has decided to provide some flagship documentaries during containment. The surprising choice is that the SVOD service is placed on YouTube instead of creating special areas on its website.

In the United States, Netflix has established partnerships with certain schools. The streaming service allows them to access certain content that is considered to be educational in order to watch it with students. Problem, the school is closed and they cannot access it.

As a result, the SVOD service decided to release nine documentaries (including the excellent Our Planet) on its US YouTube channel and provide subtitles in multiple languages. Netflix invites teachers to recommend them to students for discussion through video conferencing. Of course, everyone can use it.

Wonderful choice for YouTube

Of course, some people may wonder why Netflix chose YouTube over its own platform to make this gift. Is this a way to increase visibility by using Google’s suggestions? Is this a technical limitation? Or just shut out people without a Netflix account? In any case, in addition to these YouTube videos, Netflix also provides teachers with documentation to help them prepare for the course.

In addition to “Notre Dame” (providing incredible images of nature), there are documentaries “Baby”, “Explanation” and “Thirteen”. Whether you are a student or limited to research content, you should treat yourself well.
