Netflix dropping MAJOR feature for users with cheaper subscriptions

Netflix dropping MAJOR feature for users with cheaper subscriptions
Aug 21 2022 Share

As if Netflix wasn’t receiving enough criticism already, the streaming giant’s latest plans will definitely turn a few heads as it is set to remove one of its major perks for users who are always on the go.

In a recent revelation, Netflix said that it will scrap the option to download content for users on their cheaper ad-supported plan, which is set to start rolling out at some point in 2023.

According to Bloomberg, part of the app’s code discovered by developer Steve Moser will not allow downloads for users subscribing to Netflix with ads. This is the latest blow to the streaming platform’s appeal, with Disney+ just recently surpassing Netflix in subscriptions for the first time ever.

Excerpts from the code also suggest that users on cheaper plans may not even be allowed to skip ads or access playback controls whilst ads are running.

Following his ban from Instagram and Facebook, controversial social media personality Andrew Tate said that he was receiving up to 10,000 death threats per day before his accounts were removed.

In response to the bans, Tate stated that his online abuse claims were ‘ignored’, going on to suggest that Instagram also ignored his attempts at supporting women through charitable donations to charities which support women against domestic violence.

“The media is spinning a false image of me on repeat, and Instagram bowing to pressure is a massive shame. I will always have millions of fans around the world and my platform would be a beacon of light, teaching people of all genders and races how to respect one another for years to come,” Tate said.

The former kickboxer suggested that banning him would only inspire more hate mobs and division, calling on the platform to allow him to ‘continue educating the youth of today’ on his values.

The recent mass street brawl in Hamrun (and a number of others) stirred national conversation on the state of Malta’s security, with everyday citizens & politicians alike airing their concerns & frustrations.

With the support and collaboration of PN Gozo spokesperson Alex Borg, PN spokesperson for Home Affairs Joe Giglio highlighted the Nationalist Party’s security-related proposals for Malta, arguing that the country’s security is indeed being threatened.

The first one calls for the strengthening of the police force by improving conditions, highlighting how the force is demotivated, overworked, overstretched and underpaid. The second calls for lawbreaking foreigners to be deported immediately without possibility of return while the third proposes the strengthening of law enforcement agencies. Army involvement was suggested in the fourth point whilst, in the fifth, Giglio highlights how Malta’s courts should be given enough resources to adapt to today’s laws through a new Criminal Code, as opposed to the procedure written in 1854.

From the Hamrun brawl, 2 Syrian men were arrested whilst 11 others were identified and are expected to be taken to court with a pending citation and charges of breaking public peace and disobeying a police officer’s orders.
