All Netflix TV shows and movies you’re not allowed to watch on the new basic plan

IF you love comedy classics like Happy Gilmore, American Pie and Mr Bean’s Holiday, you might want to think twice before signing up for Netflix’s new Basic plan.

The streaming giant has been forced to ban many popular shows and films to all users of its ad-supported subscription, which launched in early November.

And it’s not just comedy fans who will notice the lack of favourites.

Hit US series like The Office (US), Suits, House of Cards, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Superstore, The Good Place and Homeland are also banned.

Netflix warned at launch that some content might not be viewable on the Basic with Ads plan due to “license restrictions.”

While subscribers on other plans can still access the full catalog, subscribers with the new ad-supported option will see a padlock instead.

The company has informed The Sun that it is working to resolve these restrictions.

It is claimed that available titles account for an average of 85 to 95 percent of viewers, depending on the country.

Other well-known films missing are The Wolf Of Wall Street, Fifty Shades Of Gray and Inglourious Basterds.

And the entire film series of major franchises such as The Hobbit, Hunger Games and America Pie are completely missing.

Netflix tends to hide blocked titles on its main screen unless one is in the top ten.

People are more likely to get a nasty surprise when they’re looking for something — especially if they’ve downgraded from a different subscription tier and know that title is on Netflix.

That means users are missing out on the current top ten hits Minions and More 2, Sing, and Motherland.

Netflix Basic with Ads is the company’s new budget option, priced at £4.99 / $6.99.

Aside from some content not being available, the other big difference is in the ads themselves.

Netflix says viewers can expect to watch an average of about four minutes of advertising per hour.

But a recent test by The Sun found that the ads aren’t that intrusive – find out more here.

Another big difference is that you only get a maximum video quality of 720p and you can only use the account to watch one screen at a time.
