Netflix to launch Basic with Ads, a lower priced ad-supported plan in November

Here are some key details:

  • Cost: Basic with Ads will cost just $6.99 a month in the US and launch on November 3, 2022 at 12pm ET.
  • Availability: Basic with Ads will be available in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain, the UK and the US. 
  • Plan Options: Current plans and members will not be impacted. Basic with Ads complements their existing ad-free Basic, Standard and Premium plans. 
  • Viewing Experience: Video quality is limited to 720p HD with an average of 4 to 5 minutes of ads per hour. A limited number of movies and TV shows won’t be available due to licensing restrictions. There won’t be an option to download titles.

In short, this new lower priced plan limits streaming quality and throws some ads in-between viewing.
