After years of resisting commercials on its streaming platform, Netflix is now introducing an ad-supported tier to its service.

It even works on Firefox mobile. On android, use NewPipe instead of the YT app, it can play in background and doesn’t have ads.

Ads are a cancer of the web, will track you and reduce your battery life.

we don’t call it “piracy” here, we call it “sharing free of charge for the greater good”

@sexy_peach Alternatively, you could just vote with your wallet and cancel your subscription.

They will introduce a cheaper subscription plan with ads. It’s not a general thing as the title of the article would suggest.

Netflix really wants to commit suicide.

I’m not fine with ads, but as long as no ads plans exist, this doesn’t bother me too much… At least, not more than the general lack of good, not self produced, content that Netflix is suffering since a couple of years ago. Which, in the end, may be the reason for me to unsubscribe.

What’s wrong with Netflix’s self-produced content?

It’s not the fact that it is self produced. I just find it just bad/uninteresting (with some notable exceptions). Maybe my tastes are a bit off.
