Netflix’s upcoming ad-supported launch: India’s availability, price, and release date

Users must pay $6.99 for the Netflix Basic with Ads package. Four to five minutes of commercials would be displayed to users per hour on other platforms, such as Disney+ Hostar, which already has ad-supported subscriptions in India.

On November 3, 2022, Netflix will officially introduce its ad-supported membership option after months of leaks and rumors. Online rumors on this proposal have been kicking around for a while. The multimedia streaming service said earlier this year that it has lost some members as a result of increased competition and the propensity of users to disclose their passwords. Therefore, the less expensive ad-supported plan tries to attract new paying consumers and replace any lost users.


Users would have to pay $6.99 for the Netflix Basic with Ads package, or around Rs. 580 each month. Even while the plan’s Indian cost has not yet been disclosed, it won’t be the same as the worldwide pricing. Users of the less expensive ad-supported plan will be able to watch HD material (720p), which has respectable visual quality.

The consumers would see 4 to 5 minutes of adverts per hour under the new Basic plan with ads as opposed to the current Basic plan. Individual advertising may differ in length and placement. However, viewers should anticipate seeing advertisements both before and during any show or movie.

Although the new Netflix plan will be reasonably priced, several trade-offs may annoy subscribers. The idea, for instance, prohibits consumers from downloading and viewing information offline. Some TV series or movies could also become accessible at a later time.

In spite of that, the new Basic membership plan will initially be available in 12 nations: Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain, the UK, and the US. Not one of them is India.


In India, plans for ad-supported sites like Disney+ Hostar are already in place. The website provides a Super membership tier, which costs Rs. 899 per year and includes movie and television commercial viewing. It costs Rs. 75 per month when we convert the pricing. That being said, Netflix’s Basic plan is presently Rs. 199 per month and does not include ads.

Now, the business would need to cut the cost of the Basic plan if it wanted to display adverts and earn money from advertisers. If I had to guess, the Netflix Basic with Ads plan may cost about Rs. 100 per month in India. As previously said, the plan won’t be accessible in India beginning November 3, 2022, but Netflix need to make it available soon.
