Have a very Murray Christmas!

Movie-streaming giant Netflix has revealed new €15, €25 and €50 prepaid gift cards just in time for the movie-viewing binge that Christmas is all about.

The new Netflix cards are available nationwide from GameStop in Ireland.

With the new cards you can put credit on your existing Netflix account or open a new account.

Users can activate the cards without the need to add other payment information like credit card or PayPal details.

This means when you are stuffed to the gills with turkey and can’t stomach another mince pie you can tune into content like Bill Murray’s Christmas special A Very Murray Christmas or watch shows like House of Cards or Narcos, to name a few, on any device from a smart TV to smartphone, tablet or games console.

Netflix said that the new cards do not affect its first month for free offer.

Users who already have an account can put the code on their account via the Netflix website and members will receive service as long as their card balance lasts.

Netflix said more stores will be added in the next months. You can find supported retailers via the Netflix card store locator.
