Netflix recently launched in 130 new countries, including South Africa.

The service is priced in US dollars in SA, with plans structured the same as in the United States.

A free month-long trial is also available to let potential subscribers use the service before deciding whether they want to sign up.

Signing up for the trial is easy, but will require that you have a credit card or PayPal account.

Here are the steps you will need to follow to access the trial.
