Netflix will launch a new ad-supported subscription plan, as well as the ad-free ones. The company announced it would launch the new subscription tier early in 2023. It will be cheaper, but might not have all the content. According to the claim, Netflix might also not play commercials in the specific content. Here are the details about Netflix’s ad-supported tier.
Netflix originals might not play ads
Netflix’s upcoming ad-supported tier might not have ads on all the content. Lucas Shaw from Bloomberg announced this feature. He also said content for kids on the streaming platform could also be free of ads. Indeed, the company would not show ads during licensed content either because of its current agreements. However, Netflix can play ads before or after the program and get over the agreements.
According to Bloomberg, Netflix might not have ads during original content when they’re first released. The company could insert ads at a later time. That means, you will not see any commercials in the newer original movies, series, and shows. Netflix will not show any commercials to kids because it could bring more trouble. For example, Google paid $170 million for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act after the FTC found YouTube had illegally collected data from kids.
While these developments are still on the process, developer Steve Moser found a code in the Netflix’s app. Moser announced that new ad-supported tier could also block support for offline viewing. However, it is not certain how to launch a lower priced, ad-supported option according to the streaming platform.
Netflix will launch its lower-priced, ad-supported subscription plan in early 2023. You can use Netflix with its ad-free plans until that time. Here is the details about the streaming service’s tiers.
