There are three ways developers can test their apps on Google Play: internal test (only developers and a minimal team), closed test (beta by invitation) and open trial (access appears on Google Play). Netflix performs its tests under the second model.

As always with betas, you should keep in mind that testing unfinished software may prevent Netflix services from functioning properly
