Netflix is one of the largest and most popular streaming for millions of viewers from all over the world. Over the past few years, Netflix has become an important part of people’s lives. But as we all know, over the past few months Netflix is going through a rough patch, with a massive drop in subscribers. Netflix is all set to bring a massive change in its operations and consumer base. And previously, the streaming platform revealed its plans to introduce an ad-tier-based subscription to attract new customers.
While the streamer continues its work towards building an ads-based subscription to attract new consumers, there is a slight catch to it. As we all know, the new plan will be cheaper than the current Netflix rates. But do you know that the users with the cheaper subscriptions will not have access to certain shows? Strange as it sounds, the streamer revealed that a few percent of their titles, including Peaky Blinders and House of Cards (depending on the country) would not be available on the ad-tier subscription. Here is all you need to know.
Netflix ad-tier plans might not have your favorite show in its catalog
If you are a Netflix user planning to buy the ad-tier subscription, this post might be for you. While Netflix finally succeeded in introducing their ad-tier programs, it seems like an ad-tier user will not have access to the complete Netflix catalog. The shows that will not be available for the ad-tier users include Peaky Blinders, House of Cards, New Girl, Queen of the South, Marlon, The Magicians and Alexander Dreymon starrer The Last Kingdom to name a few.
Apart from that, the ad-tier plan will also miss out on a few popular Netflix films. Some of them include Tom Cruise starrer Oblivion, Robin Hood, Quantum of Solace, The Imitation Game and Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. For the ad-tier users, the viewers will have to sit through 4-5 minutes of ads per hour.
Furthermore, the ad-tier users might not have the offline download option. What are your thoughts on the streamer introducing the ad-tier subscription?
