YOU may have heard that Netflix will be making some big changes very soon.
The streaming giant has been forced to the drawing board after recently losing nearly a million subscribers.
Fans were left with no choice but to cancel the service as the cost of living crisis hits.
One idea bosses are banking on is a new ad-supported subscription tier.
But some features we love might be missing.
Here are some of the rumors we’ve heard so far.
How many ads will there be in the Netflix advertising plan?
It’s not clear how many ads Netflix plans to run on its new subscription tier.
Microsoft has been chosen to manage the ads page for you.
However, we’ve heard reports that ads may not appear everywhere.
Apparently, you can enjoy some original movies ad-free at first.
And some children’s programs could also be without advertising.
Does Netflix put ads on all subscription plans?
No, there was no indication that advertising would be shown at all subscription levels.
As far as we know, this will be a brand new level specifically containing ads.
The existing three should remain as they are.
When will Netflix’s ad-supported plan roll out?
All we know so far is that Netflix’s new ad-supported tier is set to launch sometime in 2023.
How much does Netflix’s ad-supported plan cost?
Netflix hasn’t revealed the exact cost of its ad-supported plan yet.
At the moment the cheapest tier is Basic which costs £6.99 / $9.99 so obviously it has to be a few pounds cheaper to be considered worthwhile.
Experts previously told The Sun that they expect it to cost around £5.49 / $7.99 in the UK and US.
Will I lose some features of the Netflix advertising plan?
The pleasure of watching a movie or series non-stop isn’t the only privilege you’re about to lose, it seems.
According to a developer, you may be blocked from downloading shows and movies offline.
The ability to watch shows offline is a huge perk, allowing people to save some of their favorites straight to mobile devices so they can watch when there’s no network connection.
Don’t forget, you must have at least the Standard plan to get HD content, the current Basic tier doesn’t even offer that now.
So if you think about falling from the highest two, you also lose image quality.
