Default 3/11/22 UK Netflix launches £4.99 package with adverts

[Netflix is to broadcast adverts for the first time
in the UK from 3 November,
as the streaming giant launches a
new £4.99 monthly package in an
effort to reignite its stalled global growth.
]


[The world’s biggest streaming company,
which has this year seen its first quarterly
decline in subscribers in more than a decade,
will offer a significant reduction to
its cheapest existing ad-free package,
which is £6.99 a month in the UK.

Netflix, which is launching the
ad-supported service called Basic
with Ads in 12 countries from 1 November,
said a “limited” number of films and TV series
would not be available to viewers with
the new subscription package due
to licensing restrictions with third parties.]

Interesting, I'd be tempted if it was a bit cheaper than that as ads don't bother me much but if there's less content available and it's only a 50p a week saving then it's not really worth it

Goodbye to your viewers Netflix.

People don't like Adverts, it's one of the main reasons why most people went to Netflix in the first place was to escape them breaking up the flow of an episode.
