On November 3, Netflix will introduce a plan with advertisements
Netflix Ad-supported Economy Plan launches November 3 for $6.99 per month in select countries.
Netflix has officially announced the launch of its new ad-supported plan, “Basic with Ads,” which launches on November 3 in nine countries for just $6.99 per month.
The plan will be implemented in 12 markets in Canada, Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Australia, Japan, Korea, and Brazil. Spain will also have access to the plan but on November 10.
The streaming platform is successfully competing with rival Disney+ for a month, which will also launch its ad-supported plan for $7.99 per month on December 8.
In the announcement, Netflix showed its intentions to expand the ad-supported plan to more countries in the future but has not yet settled the rights to the shows and movies in the plan. The company stated that “a limited number of movies and TV shows will be unavailable due to licensing restrictions, which we are working to resolve.”
According to Netflix COO Greg Peters, approximately 5-10% of the catalog may not be available to users who choose to switch to the new plan. Also, the plan will stream videos in 720p HD instead of 1080p HD, and you won’t have the option to watch 4K.
Ads are expected to be 15-30 seconds long and run before and during the show or movie, while new movies receive non-stop pre-roll ads. The average limited ad serving will be 4-5 minutes of ads per hour.
