In February, Netflix briefly offered viewers the chance to watch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before free and without a subscription as a way of getting people to sign up for the service to watch the sequel, P.S. I Still Love You.

Now, the streaming platform has taken things a step further, launching an entire page of Netflix original movies and TV shows that are free to watch globally. The films currently available are the horror movie Bird Box, the Adam Sandler-Jennifer Aniston comedy Murder Mystery, and the Academy Award-nominated The Two Popes. On the TV side, the first episodes of Stranger Things, Our Planet, Boss Baby: Back in Business, When They See Us, Love is Blind, Elite, and Grace and Frankie are free to watch as well.

If you don’t yet have a Netflix subscription but want to check any of the above titles out, the launch page for all Netflix’s current free movies and TV episodes can be found here.

It isn’t yet clear just how long these titles will be available, and whether the available movies/TV shows will be rotated as Netflix continues adding new content. Polygon has reached out to Netflix for comment.
