Netflix and Microsoft are teaming up to have cheaper ad-supported subscription plans.
So far, they have not released details about how much these plans will cost subscribers.
This comes after the streaming platform lost 200,000 subscribers between January and March.
Their COO said in a statement, “But our long-term goal is clear. More choice for consumers and a premium, better-than-linear TV brand experience for advertisers.”
I just don’t see this working out. They lost subscribers because they raised the price so their answer is to ruin the experience for a cheaper value? Not smart. Netflix has never been known to have ads whereas with Hulu, you expect it. I rather just pay the premium price to never have to deal with the ads in between my favorite show.
