News Tech: There have been numerous discussions on Netflix’s ad-supported tier, which is essentially a cheaper membership plan with advertising. Although this new strategy has not yet been publicly unveiled (it is anticipated to do so in 2023), online whispers are beginning to circulate. According to recent rumours from Engadget, offline watching may not be available on Netflix’s ad-supported plan. The Netflix with advertisements plan might not support offline viewing.

The ad-supported tier from Netflix is expected to be officially launched sometime in early 2023, and it will give you the option to pay less for Netflix. However, as with anything that’s cheaper, not all features of the regular subscriptions may be present in this tier. Developer Steve Moser has found text in the Netflix iPhone app that indicates that the ad-supported tier won’t allow you to download content for offline viewing. This pretty much means this tier won’t be the best option if you frequently watch on the go and don’t have Unlimited data.

Understandably, a cheaper plan option should not have all the bells and whistles of its more expensive counterpart. It sounds reasonable to expect that downloads (and probably some other feature) could be missing from the ad-supported plan, and as TechCrunch rightfully underlines, it is in fact quite challenging to serve ads on offline content.

On the other hand, we have Hulu and HBO Max. Their ad-supported plans are $6.99 and $9.99 per month, respectively. However, Netflix already offers a Basic plan starting at $9.99, so the most accurate-sounding prediction of the ad-supported plan stands at somewhere between $4.99 and $6.99 (or why not $7.99) per month.
