Netflix , the streaming service giant has just announced some major changes within their subscription tiers that upset fans worldwide.
The streaming service’s cheapest plan currently works well if you’re on a tighter budget and allows you to enjoy the Netflix experience without any ads.
Unfortunately this has changed, as of January 2024, there are now three subscription plans, standard with adverts @ £4.99 / month, standard @ £10.99/month, and premium @ £17.99 / month.
For anyone looking to enjoy their favourite shows on a budget Netflix’s standard with adverts plan seems like a good deal as it allows you to download on two devices at a time with full HD video quality. The two main drawbacks which angered fans are of course, adverts in between shows, and that some movies and TV programmes are unavailable with the basic plan.
With the introduction of the new basic plan, comes the removal of one its most popular ad-free plans. Netflix’s most basic ad-free experiences will no longer be available to new and rejoining users.
On its website, Netflix has placed a warning stating that “The Basic plan is no longer available for new or rejoining members. If you are currently on the Basic plan, you can remain on this plan until your plan is changed or your account is cancelled.”
