Netflix to launch a less expensive ad supported subscription tier in November

Netflix will purportedly launch a less expensive ad-supported tier for its streaming platform toward the beginning of November as the organization attempts to stem the deficiency of more than 1 million subscribers in 2022.

The organization was at first planning to begin offering the service in 2023, however, it had been knocking to 1 November to stretch out beyond Disney+’s planned launch of an ad-supported tier in December.

As per reports, Netflix’s service will launch in the US, France, Germany, Australia, and Canada among different places, and is expected to be priced somewhere in the range of US$7 and $9. The most basic Netflix subscription presently costs US$9.99 or $15.49 for a standard subscription.

The ad tier would be extra to the current tiers, meaning current subscribers wouldn’t see any advertisements on Netflix.

A representative for Netflix said the organization had not made any decisions yet.

“We are still in the early days of deciding how to launch a lower priced, ad-supported option and no decisions have been made,” they said. “So this is all just speculation at this point.”

In July, Netflix revealed a loss of 1 million subscribers for the second quarter of 2022, its second quarter of loss of subscribers, with shares falling 67% to the end of July.

On the investor call in July, the organization’s chief operations and product officer, Greg Peters, uncovered the organization’s thinking behind acquainting advertising with help lower-fee subscriptions.

He said Netflix wants to “provide an incredible experience for consumers … who choose to take the ad-supported offering, but also provide an incredible experience for brands and advertisers who want to work with us to make sure that we’re doing a good job of elevating what that looks like for them”.

He said he was hopeful that advertising on Netflix can “deliver an experience which is fundamentally different from the ad experience” on broadcast or cable TV today.

The launch would focus on nations where there were “more mature ad markets,” Peters said at the time.

Netflix declared in July it would cooperate with Microsoft for the ad technology and as a sales partner worldwide. The two organizations are looking for US$65 cost for 1,000 views, looking for a minimum US$10m annual ad spend commitment from organizations now, and promoting the organization can get 500,000 subscribers on the ad-supported tier toward the finish of 2022.

Peters told financial backers in July there had been “a lot of excitement” in early conversations with advertising agencies.

“I think for them … they’ve wanted to connect with the titles, incredible content that [Netflix chief executive, Ted Sandros’s] team was putting out there,” he said. “And I think we also share a perspective on what is a great experience for consumers and advertisers.

“So when you think about the kind of advertising we see, frequency caps, what’s a great ad experience, we’re noticing a high degree of alignment there.

“So that enthusiasm, that alignment is increasing sort of my optimism and the excitement that I’ve got to basically get this out there because I think it’s going to be a win-win-win for all parties involved.”
