Netflix must have found its rival Disney Plus ‘s decision not to broadcast ads in children’s programs with a decision taken in May, as it plans to make the same decision in its own advertising subscription. As reported by Bloomberg, Netflix has told its partners that children’s programs will remain ad-free .
Sources also told the outlet that original films will initially remain ad-free, which will likely put filmmakers at ease who don’t want their high-budget content to be ruined by commercials. If it’s true, subscribers will definitely be happy about it too.
However , original content such as “Stranger Things”, “Bridgerton” and “Squid Game” are still expected to contain ads.
There Will Be No Ads On Child-Specific Content
If the broadcaster would keep children’s shows ad-free, this could help make up for the recent loss of subscribers. Some parents may have given up on the service due to the high price, so the cheaper ad subscription option can help save money while giving their kids an ad-free streaming experience.
At this time, we don’t know much about Netflix’s upcoming ad subscription option. All we know is that it will enter service in 2023 . Analysts predict that Netflix will be one of the leading companies in online video advertising, generating approximately $4 billion in ad revenue per year.
