It comes out on November 1 in 11 other countries, including the UK, Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Mexico, and Spain (November 10th).
The ads will run for about four to five minutes per hour on average, and you’ll only be able to watch in 720p/HD. Not only will you not be able to watch certain movies and TV shows on the ad plan, but licensing will also keep you from being able to do so.
We don’t know what kinds of ads you’ll see, but we do know that the first ones will be 15- to 30-second spots that will play before and during shows. Those ads will be “broadly” targeted based on things like your country and the types of videos you watch.
TECHNOLOGY NEWS – Netflix with advertisements debuts/lunch November 3rd
This list of restrictions might stop people who already have Netflix from downgrading to the $10 Basic plan, but it could get people who have other video subscriptions or who stopped paying for Netflix to start paying again.
Netflix’s tier with ads has finally been given a release date, and it’s now clear what you’ll have to give up to pay less. The new “Basic with Ads” plan will cost $7 per month and will be available on November 3 at 12 PM Eastern. The US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, and Spain will be among the first 12 countries to be able to watch it.
Besides the commercials, which will run for an average of four to five minutes per hour, there are other trade-offs. You’ll only be able to watch in “720p/HD,” and licensing won’t let you watch some movies and TV shows. Netflix says that it is “working on” getting rid of that rule. You also can’t download content to watch when you’re not online. If you want to watch something on your next flight, you’ll have to pay for a Standard or Premium plan.
At first, the ads will be 15- to 30-second spots that will run before and during shows. Those ads will be “broadly” targeted based on things like your country and the types of content you like to watch. Nielsen’s digital rating system is also being used to keep track of how well these ads do in the US.
Then, there are still many reasons to choose a more expensive plan. But Netflix hopes that this will make its service more available to more people than it was before. It’s necessary in some ways. In recent quarters, Netflix has been losing subscribers, and Basic with Ads could help either bring in new users or keep current users from leaving.
