In Science and Space: We are all aware of Netflix’s impending ad-supported strategy. Although it will display advertisements on the material to make up for the cheaper fee, there may be some positive news. Bloomberg claims that some content in Netflix’s ad-supported tier may not have advertisements, as reported by Phone Arena. About this upcoming new ad tier that Netflix will introduce, more information is beginning to become available. We have learned that the less expensive subscription will not provide access to the entire database of content. This is due to the fact that Netflix needs to update the studio licences it has.
Also, Netflix might not show ads on certain content aimed at kids. Showing ads to children has been a major issue with several companies including YouTube. There’s no telling what kind of content the kids will see in the ads. Also, not many toddlers have credit cards to buy the products the companies are peddling.
When Netflix licensed the content, it was under the agreement that it won’t be shown with advertisements. However, if the studio or company does not agree to renew the license, then Netflix can not show it with ads. Netflix’s ad-supported tier might skip ads for certain content. People are dreading seeing ads on their favorite Netflix content, but some of the movies and shows will be excused, it seems. According to the sources, when Netflix original movies and shows first arrive on the platform, they will show without any ads. We don’t know how long they’ll be ad-free after they land, however.
Thus, some of the kid content on Netflix might not feature ads. Again, we’re in the dark about which shows will come sans ads. Most likely, it will be content that’s targeted at kids below a certain age range. There are still plenty of details don’t know about this new ad-supported plan, but more information will seep in as time goes on.
