The drastic changes come as bosses admit this week they’ve lost 200,000 subscribers — the first drop in a decade.

But with people’s budgets already tight during a livelihood crisis, it looks like many are already disembarking.

The biggest annoyance seems to be focused on the idea of ​​annoying ads appearing.

“For me @netflix adding commercials is an immediate cancellation of the service. I absolutely DO NOT pay to watch ads why I can’t stand cable,” tweeted one subscriber.

“The moment Netflix adds ads, I’m canceling,” added another.

“It’s like you want me to unsubscribe from @netflix,” complained a third.

Meanwhile, others are considering covering their own backs with tactical subscribing.

“I’ll dive in if there are things I want to catch up on,” one person said.

“It’s not worth £168 a year for the 3-4 shows I actually watch on Netflix.”

The streaming giant is considering ads as an option for a cheaper subscription, while those willing to pay the top price can go without them.

Competitors are already doing something similar, like Game of Thrones maker HBO is doing on its HBO Max platform in the US.

An insider told The Sun that the cheaper plan is ad-supported could cost £5.49 / $7.99.

Meanwhile, Netflix is ​​looking to raise more money in another way, by cracking down on password sharing.

An estimated 100 million accounts are shared with people outside of their household.

A new payment plan is already in preparation tested in Chile, Costa Rica and Peruwhere bill payers are asked to pay about an extra $2 to $3 (£1.53 to £2.30) for two additional profiles.
