It seems that ads are inescapable, no matter the platform. Netflix is the next to join in on a new ad-supported tier of subscription. Luckily, this isn’t causing a price bump in other subscription tiers. The Netflix ad-supported tier will be starting at $6.99.
The subscription will be available in November 3rd in the United States. The new tier will be called “Basic with Ads“. There will be around 4-5 minutes of advertisements per hour according to CNN. Honestly, opposed to other platforms and cable, that’s not too bad! This will definitely grow Netflix’s revenue a ton, as now they can get paid by advertisers. Although, this is coming off the first time in a decade that they had a decline in subscribers. Will this save them?
