Well, we all knew it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Just last night, Netflix announced that they will officially introduce a new ad-supported streaming plan to initially 12 countries, including the US, Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Spain, and the UK on November 3, 2022.

This new subscription plan—called “Basic with Ads”—can be availed for a lower price and will feature four-minute advertisements that will be shown for every hour of content you watch.

Don’t worry, though! According to Netflix, if you’re currently subscribed to their existing Basic, Standard, and Premium plans, your viewing experience will not be affected.

“Unlike our other ad-free plans, ads will be shown before or during most TV shows and movies. Some movies and TV shows will not be available due to licensing restrictions, and downloads are not included,” according to Netflix’s website. “You cannot skip or fast forward ads, but you can pause playback during an ad. If you prefer to watch Netflix without ads, you can upgrade your plan.”

The streaming giant's president for worldwide advertising, Jeremi Gorman, believes that this is a great opportunity to “reach a diverse audience, including younger viewers who increasingly don’t watch linear TV.”

While there’s no confirmation yet whether this new tier will also be rolled out in the Philippines soon, it can definitely benefit those who are looking for a more affordable streaming option.
