Netflix has remained the biggest subscription streaming platform serving its customers for more than two decades. All these years, they have remained committed to strategies that do not bother the streaming experience of viewers. However, this year has been quite a nightmare for the production company as they lost many subscribers. So Netflix announced an ad plan a few months back to get things back on track.
The basic tier started on November 3, which changed the pattern of this streamer forever. While many viewers opted for this cheaper tier as the company calls it “unmissable entertainment at unbeatable value.” This plan is currently available in 12 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain, the UK, and the US. People who are thinking of taking it must look at the benefits of this plan.
What good Netizens can expect from the new Netflix ads plan?
The Netflix ads-supported plan charges $7 a month, which gives subscribers content in 720p resolution and HD. It takes an average of 4 to 5 minutes of commercials in one hour of watch time. You can stream shows and movies on TV and mobile device at a time, but there is no download option. Here are the things people might love about this lower-priced advert plan.
There are no commercials for kids’ zone
According to the report sent out by CNET, Netflix has kept the kids’ profile free of commercials. There are a lot of animated shows and movies children can stream without any interruption. It includes Avatar: The Last Airbender, Community, The Sea Beast, The Christmas Chronicles, and Good Witch, among others.
Adverts are not lengthy like other streamers
As per the experience of streamers, your watch time will involve four breaks of 30 to 75 seconds. For instance, if someone is watching an episode of one hour, the commercial will take a maximum of 5 minutes. However, if we compare this to Hulu, it takes 5 minutes on an episode of 22 minutes, which is way more than Netflix.
You get to stream all Netflix Original content
Even though there are many TV shows and movies missing on this tier, people get to stream all the Original content. Therefore, fans of Stranger Things, The Crown, Shadow & Bones, Lucifer, and The Gray Man can get their favorites at the lowest price.
You get a satisfactory view on your device
Another good news for subscribers of basic ads plan is that they can stream all the content in 720p and HD. It is quite similar to the adverts-free plan as they both have similar features expect commercials, whereas there are other streamer like Hulu who do not provide HD view at this price.
The price is lower than other streaming services
The basic $7 worth plan has everything that viewers wish while spending the least of their money. Even Hulu charges $8 for their basic monthly subscription and it does not allow you to access to 75+ channels of Live TV.
