Netflix's Cheaper Ad-Supported Plan Now Available on Apple TV

Netflix this week brought its more affordable ad-supported plan to the Apple TV, which means subscribers who have the cheaper plan can now watch content through their set-top boxes from Apple.

When Netflix launched its ad-supported plan back in November, it did not work on the ‌Apple TV‌. Netflix at the time said that support for the plan would be "coming soon," with access to Netflix on the ‌Apple TV‌ limited to the more expensive Basic, Standard, and Premium plans.

As noted by TechCrunch, a Reddit user noticed that the Basic with Ads plan was available on the latest version of the Netflix app on the ‌Apple TV‌, and Netflix confirmed that the ad-supported tier is now on tvOS.

The Netflix Basic with Ads plan is priced at $6.99 per month, $3 cheaper than the Basic $9.99 per month plan with no ads. The ads range in length from 15 to 30 seconds, and there are four to five minutes of ads per hour.

Cancelled Netflix. I paid for a plan that allowed for two simultaneous streams, so my grandma could watch. With their recent “crackdown”, they stopped that from being possible since we don’t live in the same house.

I pay for TWO SIMULTANEOUS STREAMS. What is it to them that my grandma uses it in a different location. Netflix showed themselves to be complete b*stards with this quest of theirs. Gladly cancelled and just introduced her to the other streaming services I subscribe to. They won’t be missed.

EDIT: To those who are actually downvoting this (haha), I say “downvote all you want to defend a desperate and arbitrary policy, but the basic truth is this: Netflix lost my business, and they’ll lose more business because of their cynical greed.” Downvoting won’t get them that money back. Don’t sell plans that allow for two simultaneous streams and then say my CLOSE family member can’t use the second stream. BYE!

Too little too late. I already tried to downgrade to the ad-supported plan and was very surprised to find out that it didn't work on my AppleTV. I didn't see that clearly indicated anywhere, and considering that I was an active AppleTV/Netflix viewer then that information would have been readily available to them.

So we cancelled my Netflix service and I went onto other streaming providers.

Even since cancelling my subscription, they are pretty relentless trying to regain my business with a barrage of emails almost daily. No thanks Netflix.

Sorry Netflix, too late for me too. Not enough compelling content for me to stay with you. I’ve moved onto better streaming services and haven’t looked back. You were great in your prime! Not so much anymore.
