Netflix is kicking subscribers off their grandfathered-in cheap ad-free plans

Netflix has started forcing people off their old grandfathered-in cheap ad-free plans. The streaming giant said it would start doing it later this year and that time has come. Existing subscribers on the discontinued plan will see a message in the Netflix app informing them they must choose a new plan. Worse yet, even if your final month on the old plan hasn’t ended, there’s no way to dismiss the message and continue watching. You must select a new plan once the message appears. The current plan options in the US are $6.99/month with ads, $15.49/month for 1080p without ads, or $22.99/month for 4K without ads.

    Well as much as I watch a lot of of movies with Netflix, I Don’t intend to go broke trying to fill their pockets.

    Sorry family. Netflix will be going bye-bye! I have other ways to watch.

    Is the entire Netflix library of shows available in 4k?

  5. Baehr says:

    Media streamers would be well to remember that the only reason people subscribe is that it’s a little easier than piracy.

    get the ad supported there are not many ads at all and they are very short

      For now. As Netflix continues to pursue higher income per user the number and length of ads will go up over time. That’s not just a theory, it’s the only way they can continue to make the line go up indefinitely and that’s what Wall Street demands.

        There’s always someone around to say “No, really its not that bad, they’re here to make our life better!”.
