The Morning After: Netflix with ads launches on November 3rd 2022/10/14 11:15:28 Engadget
Netflix''s ad-supported tier finally has a release date. The new Basic with Ads plan will be available November 3rd from 12 PM ET for $7 per month. It launches in 12 countries: the US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea and Spain. The ads will run for an average of four to five minutes per hour, and you''ll be limited to 720p/HD resolution. That’s not the only limitation: Licensing will also prevent you from watching certain movies and TV shows on the ad plan. While we don’t know what kinds of ads you’ll get, we do know they’ll initially be 15- to 30-second spots and will play both before and during shows. There’ll be "broad" targeting for those ads based on criteria like your country and the content genres you watch. That list of caveats might stop existing Netflix subscribers from downgrading (the Basic plan starts at $10), but it could convince folks with other video subscriptions – or a lapsed Netflix sub – to start paying again. – Mat Smith The biggest stories you might have missed The best tablets for 2022 Two unreleased and ''never digitized'' NES games are up for auction on eBay FAA says Apple AirTags are allowed in checked baggage Apple Card users can soon sign up for a ''high-yield'' savings account Sony releases its first over-the-counter hearing aids Microsoft''s HoloLens headsets are giving US Army testers nausea Microsoft Office is dead.

NEW YORK , March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaming companies are in the midst of an M&A race to fight for exclusivity, size, and financial potential.
