Netflix Netflix: Get Netflix's Basic with Ads Streaming Plan in Canada Get the Lowest Price Ever for Netflix Canada!get this deal
Stream your favourite shows at a new low price with Netflix, where their Basic with Ads plan is now available in Canada.
Originally launched on November 1, Basic with Ads with a new low-cost streaming plan for Netflix and marks the lowest price ever for the service in Canada. For comparison, the $5.99 monthly price is lower than other major streaming services including Apple TV+ ($8.99), Crave ($9.99), Disney+ ($11.99) and Prime Video ($9.99), while Netflix's higher subscription tiers start at $9.99.
Basic with Ads is available to new or existing members who wish to downgrade and there are some caveats with the lower price, as Basic with Ads will automatically play non-skippable ads before and during most streaming content, excluding new movies and kids content – ads are 15-30 seconds in length and Netflix estimates that there are five minutes of ads for every hour of streaming. In addition, the maximum streaming resolution is locked to 720p and some content is unavailable due to licensing restrictions.
Netflix's Basic, Standard and Premium streaming plans are still ad-free are available at their current rates of $9.99, $16.49 and $20.99 per month, respectively.

New movies coming to the service — notably marquee originals like Knives Out 2 — “will just have a pre-roll” of spots before the feature plays without interruption, Peters said. “We’ll try to preserve that sort of cinematic model there,” consistent how most rivals handle it, he said.
-- only newer Chromecast with Google TV works; the older "pure streaming" Chromecast does not work
-- Apple TV not supported (?!!)
-- iOS must be version 15 or newer

That being said, my statement wasn't work, I did say most of them, Netflix is the only one that earns a profit on streaming.

When I 1st signed up the Standard plan was good value. Now after a couple price increases, meh, not so much. Especially with less Content (IMO) that I'm interested in.

Especially when Netflix lost the Marvel/Star Wars licensing/copyright to Disney+.
On the verge of cancelling my Netflix $16.49 + Ontario tax Standard plan.
Netflix made 5 billion dollars last year dude lol
but hard to argue with free.. lol.
On Cable the newest irritating way to get you to watch the ads is on global. When I record a certain show I watch and I don't watch it for 3 days, they convert it to "Not able to skip ads" and there are about 6 slots in 1 hour with ads running for about 60 seconds and more. Anyone have any good resolve for this?
It’ a good thing they offer cheaper ad based tiers though for those who don’t mind ads or can’t afford more expensive tiers.
We sometimes sub to StackTV and it drives me crazy when they have a single commercial break. Takes me right out of watch I'm watching.
I suppose there's options. I'll just keep doing what I'm doing.
I suppose the way to look at it though is this is a way for people to get a legitimate Netflix account for $6 a month versus not having it at all or streaming the content elsewhere illegally.
With Cable TV, I have the Rogers Nextbox 3.0.
I can record a show, watch it later and fast forward through the ads.
Heh...looks like Netflix and the ad companies both got smart.
You're set up so you have to watch the ads.
(& here I thought product placement was going to be the future, )
They don't want to scare people away with too many ads, but OTOH, maybe they want to be just annoying enough to encourage paying full price for the ad free option.

But I suspect that there are some significant compromise in content that Canada must have compared to the US. Maybe any TV show that is also in regular TV networks like Walking Dead, Riverdale, etc. might not be available in Canada on the ad tier.
