Big News Netflix Official will launch an Ad-supported subscription plan in November. Netflix has officially announced every detail about its ad-supported subscription plan. After relying on leaks and speculation for a long time. We finally know when Netflix’s cheapest tier will arrive and how much it will cost.
Netflix has named this subscription plan ‘Basic with Ads’. And has also clarified that the existing Basic plan will remain ad-free, which means it will now be known as Ad-Free Basic.
Everything You Need To Know About Netflix’s New Cheaper Subscription Plan
As Netflix detailed in the report, the plan is priced according to region. i.e. for UK users. It will cost £4.99, and for users in every other supported region, including the US, it will cost £4.99. The price is $6.99 USD.
Currently, the company plans to launch it in a limited number of countries. In Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain and Canada, the plan will start on November 1.
And in the US, UK, and Australia, it will arrive on November 3. Also, Netflix has shared its arrival time, which is 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET.
Other than that, the other plans will remain as they are, and there isn’t much difference between the two basic subscription plans despite the advertisement, which you can also note in the image above.
As with the “Basic with Ads” plan, users won’t be able to download content. But are allowed to cancel at any time and make changes easily.
There is still a huge library of TV shows and movies to watch in video quality up to 720p/HD.
Ads will appear at the beginning of the content, lasting about 15 to 30 seconds. And according to Netflix, a subscription holder will see about 4 to 5 minutes of ads per hour of content.
As Netflix has already reported, Microsoft will manage the ads, so we expect to see relevant ads. Also, currently, some content is restricted due to licensing issues.
