How to check if your account is selectiveWhat is a selective service registration?
A selective service registrant is a customer who has been approved by a provider to stream Netflix content.
These are the customers who have had an extra two-month window to watch their favorite shows and movies.
In order to be eligible for selective service, you’ll need to be an active Netflix subscriber for at least two years.
You will need to apply for the service and then fill out an application.
A selective registrant can also be a family member of a Netflix subscriber.
To apply, you must complete a form on the Netflix website.
Netflix is not responsible for any errors or omissions in your application, so if you are unsure about your eligibility, you can always contact Netflix.

They will usually be your Netflix Account Manager or Customer Service Manager.
These types of accounts are only available to those who are enrolled in the Netflix service.

Netflix also makes it clear that they do not accept applications from people who are already Netflix subscribers, and only allow applications from customers who already have an active subscription to Netflix.
This means that a customer may be approved for selective registrations, but they won’t have access to Netflix until they’ve signed in and have subscribed to the Netflix account.
A customer service rep will only be able to sign up new customers to the service, and not renew existing subscribers.
You can also sign up for Netflix using a credit card.
Netflix will charge a $15 fee to apply and then verify your account.
Netflix recommends that you apply for a selective registration once you have been signed in, but the company doesn’t always do so (some states have strict restrictions on this).
The Netflix website has more details on what you should do when you’re unsure about what kind of selective registration you’re eligible for.
