The streaming media world has ushered in a new big upheaval. Netflix launched a new plan - "Standard with Ads", which is currently available in the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Australia, Japan, Korea, etc. Since then, people can watch most of the content on Netflix for as little as $6.99 per month. And the original tiers such as Basic, Standard and Premium will keep the original price unchanged.

But as the name of Standard with Ads suggests, subscribing to the plan means people spend less money but need to accept being interrupted by unexpected ads while watching a video. Plus, there are other unavoidable pitfalls with this plan. And below, We'll dive into this new tier and provide a solution for ad-supported subscribers to download videos from Netflix.

1. How Many Ads Will Air and How Often?

During the viewing of a movie or series, there are 4 to 5 minute advertisements every hour, each appearing 15 to 30 seconds long. New Netflix movies will only have pre-roll ads, though, so you won't be interrupted by ads in the middle of your viewing. The types and sources of advertisements are also diverse, with advertisements from brands such as GM, L’Oreal, McDonald’s, LVMH, Subway, and Target.

2. What are the Downsides of the New Plan?

One of the biggest drawbacks is that ad-supported subscribers only have limited access to use the download feature, which means you can only watch some of Netflix videos offline. And you need to provide your date of birth and gender when you register for the plan, as well as general location information based on your IP address to personalize ads for you, but that makes people sensitive because it means potential privacy leaks.

3. Why You Need SameMovie Netflix Video Downloader?

Although Netflix's ad-supported plan is cheap, it has lots of drawbacks that you can't avoid. But there is an efficient way to help you get rid of these limits- use a third-party downloading tool.
