Netflix has revealed plans to add advertisements as a method to provide users with more affordable streaming options. Although the lack of advertisements is undoubtedly appealing to many Netflix subscribers, the firm has other objectives.
Many Netflix users like the lack of commercials, which allow them to jump from one episode to the next or switch between series without having to suffer through even a few seconds of commercials for supermarkets, holidays, or forthcoming episodes.
Meaning More Money
It’s this indulgence that contributes to Netflix’s monthly subscription price, but co-CEO Reed Hastings revealed intentions to include commercials as an alternative during the company’s quarterly earnings call.
While most users would see this as a con to the service, others would still call it fair as it is still a platform to get information across. We all have to wait for news regarding the situation and hopefully, it won’t affect the users too much in a negative way.
