04:05 PM October 14, 2022

You have heard of Netflix and Chill. Now, check out Netflix with Ads. This new monthly subscription tier will cost $6.99.

At the time of writing, viewers in the Philippines will not have access to the cheapest Netflix plan. Instead, specific countries like the US will be the first to try it.

Netflix says the new tier lets more people access its content. Meanwhile, the platform offers a new way for businesses to promote their products and services.

The upcoming tier will be $3.00 cheaper than the current Basic plan. The ad breaks will appear every hour and last four to five minutes.

FEATURED STORIES

However, they would have a shorter duration of 15 to 30 seconds once Basic with Ads launches. It will have fewer shows and movies than the initial plans. 

Also, it will not allow viewers to download content. The new plan would cap video quality to 720p/HD. Still, you can cancel or change your plan anytime and watch content on TV and mobile devices.

Like TikTok, Netflix with Ads will not allow political ads on the platform. Still, it will enable advertisers to target their preferred audience.

The new plan will allow them to feature Netflix ads by country and genre. Also, they can prevent their material from appearing in content that contradicts their brand. Basic with Ads will launch in the following countries:

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Mexico
  • Spain

More importantly, the original tiers will remain ad-free. Eventually, we might see this feature appear in other countries, depending on its performance.
