Netflix Basic with Ads: subscription overview
Just like the Basic plan, the basic with ads plan will also be limited to 720p/HD. The only difference of this plan is that it will show 4-5minutes of ads every hour. The ads will be played before, between, and after the shows. Each ad is supposed to be 15- 30 seconds in length.
Unfortunately, a limited number of movies and TV shows won’t be available due to licensing restrictions in the Basic with Ads plan. However, Netflix assured us that they are already working on this issue. Users will also not have the ability to download shows on Netflix.
