You do not. You can stream a lot of content completely free on Pantaflix, from Hollywood movie to TV series. Without registration, without a subscription. Even for those titles that you can rent for money, you do not need a subscription but rather only pay per title. You simply rent whatever you want to watch, whenever you want to watch it. So if you don’t watch anything for a month or two, you don’t pay anything for a month or two! Think of it as ‘pay as you go’ for films. Or maybe that should be ‘pay and stay in and don’t go anywhere’.
