Netflix Updates: According to a new rumour citing access to an internal note, Netflix is looking to put adverts on its platform and will begin cracking down on password sharing before the end of 2022. That’s a lot faster than what Netflix cofounder and CEO Reed Hastings said on the company’s most recent quarterly earnings call a month ago. Hastings has previously stated that over the “next year or two,” the world’s largest subscription based video streaming service would lay out ad driven alternatives to the present plans.

On the same call, Netflix’s COO Greg Peters stated that the company will “iterate for a year or two” on password sharing before implementing a plan. However, it may happen sooner now.The internal Netflix note was given with The New York Times by two people who had access to it, and it discloses that Netflix management plan to debut the ad-supported tier between October and December 2022. It’s unclear how Netflix’s foray into advertising will work at this point, given that it’s one of the few international services — alongside Disney+, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, Hulu, Peacock, and Paramount+ — to offer multiple plans based on video quality and the number of simultaneous screens, rather than content.Will Netflix’s Mobile, Basic, Standard, and Premium plans have an ad-supported version? This appears to be the case, as it would allow Netflix to target customers more broadly.Netflix officials mentioned how its American competitors had been able to “keep strong brands while offering an ad-supported service” in a note obtained by the New York Times. In the United States, Hulu, Peacock, Paramount+, and HBO Max all have ad-supported levels that are less expensive than commercial free plans. In late 2022, Disney+ will launch its own ad-supported tier. Ad-supported tiers are already available on Disney+ Hotstar, Voot, Zee5, Eros Now, and SonyLIV in India. “Every major streaming provider excluding Apple has or has announced an ad-supported service,” Netflix admitted in its note. People prefer lower cost solutions for good reason.”According to the internal paper obtained by NYT, Netflix’s intentions to cut down on password sharing would begin in the last three months of 2022. “We’re not trying to shut down [password] sharing,” Peters has already stated, “but we’re going to ask you to pay a little extra to be able to share.” Netflix has been testing the option for customers to pay to share their accounts outside their family in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru since March, for anyone curious about how this would operate. Netflix subscribers can add “sub accounts” for up to two people who do not reside with them at a discounted rate.In certain territories, Netflix also launched profile transfers, allowing users to transfer their watchlist, viewing history, and personalised recommendations to a new account or profile.Both ad-supported plans and the ban on password sharing are being rushed, indicating Netflix’s eagerness to turn things around. The streaming service revealed its first loss of subscribers in a decade in April, which had a significant impact on its stock price and, as a result, value, as well as the overall perception of the video streaming sector. Netfli’x claimed on its most recent quarterly results conference that it expects more than 100 million homes use its services but do not pay for them. Netflix had over 221.6 million subscribers at the end of March, but it expects to lose another 2 million by the end of the quarter.Netflix will seek to gain millions more in 2023 thanks to the earlier-than-expected deployment of lower cost packages and the opportunity to add more accounts to existing profiles.



• Netflix’s ad layer was supposed to launch in the “next year or two”.
• Plans were pushed forward as Netflix’s stock and valuation fell.
• Netflix’s competitors in the US and India already have ad tiers.
