If you want to save on Netflix but don’t want to cancel, you can now get all the information about the long-planned subscription with advertising. This will start in November and cost 4.99 euros in Germany. That’s three euros less than the previous basic tariff.

So far, this basic tariff for 7.99 euros only offers SD quality and streaming on one profile: free of advertising! What is changing in the previous tariffs and what details do you need to know before you decide to pay less and have to watch commercials for it?

Netflix: What will change in the previous tariffs?

First: The prices for the previous tariffs will not change. In order not to make the previous basic subscription look outdated compared to the new, advertising-supported entry-level tariff, there is finally HD instead of SD quality for 7.99 euros.

Netflix: What does the basic subscription with ads offer?

The cheaper monthly fee of EUR 4.99 instead of EUR 7.99 means that you can watch advertising for around 4 to 5 minutes per hour of streaming. Individual clips will be 15 to 30 seconds long. The first is available directly when you call up a stream – the others come in between.

The catalog of films and series will be reduced by a “limited number”. Netflix cites licenses as a reason, so its own productions should not be affected. But there is still negotiation. The cheapest subscription will not offer a download option, as Netflix announces here. Streams will be in HD resolution, i.e. 720p. That corresponds to 1,280 x 720 pixels. Full HD (1080p) or 4K is only available in the Standard and Premium tariffs.

Incidentally, $6.99 is charged in the US. In view of the current economic and exchange rate situation, this is remarkable. For the previous, ad-free basic tariff, you still pay 9.99 US dollars on the other side of the Atlantic. It remains to be seen whether adjustments will be made in the manufacturer’s home country or here.
