- Netflix will soon launch a new type of subscription
- It will be the cheapest option with a few compromises
- What did we learn about the new offer?
2022 certainly isn’t going to be a giant slump for Netflix, but there’s no denying that many subscribers continue to refuse to pay, and the popular streaming service is well aware of this. They are thus trying various experiments that could lure back old as well as new potential subscribers.
That’s why Netflix recently established a partnership with the Redmond giant Microsoftem and a new subscription plan was born, which will have a very low price, but at the cost of which there will be significant compromises in terms of viewing content, and not only because it will be an ad-supported subscription. Let’s look at it in detail.
How much should a Netflix subscription with advertising cost?
According to information server Bloomberg the price of a new subscription should be between 7 and 9 dollars, i.e. between 173 and 222 crowns. Currently, the cheapest subscription on Netflix is $9.99, i.e. 247 crowns in conversion. Here, the low price is due to the maximum resolution of only 480p in which videos can be watched. However, at a time when even HD is considered obsolete, this is a real pittance and few people will choose such a subscription.
So what balances out the price for the upcoming, cheaper subscription? The most significant compromise is definitely the presence of ads. Like YouTube, for example, video ads will pop up while watching a movie or series. Netflix but it promises that there should be a maximum of 4 minutes of ads for one hour of content, which is significantly less than, for example, TV or many competing platforms that also live on ads.

One more compromise
Apart from the ads, there is one more flaw in the beauty of the cheaper Netflix plan. Subscribers will not be able to download their favorite movie or series and watch it offline. The more astute among you have already figured out what the reason is. Without an Internet connection, it is not possible to implement the already mentioned advertisements in the video.
Furthermore, it is not certain what the maximum possible resolution will be. For example, only the Full HD package currently costs $15.49, i.e. 383 crowns, which is quite a difference compared to this cheapest subscription. Hopefully, the ads should turn things around a bit and we will see at least HD quality.
