Netflix’s long-awaited subscription with ads is finally here.
While the new plan may save some people money, some popular titles are missing, according to Variety.
The following show titles are not included: “Arrested Development”, “House of Cards”, “Peaky Blinders”, “New Girl”, “The Magicians”, “The Last Kingdom”, “The Sinner”, “Good Girls”, “The Good Place”, “Knight Rider”, “Queen of the South”, “Marlon”, “Friday Night Lights” and “Uncoupled” with Neil Patrick Harris.
Some of the movie titles not included are “Oblivion” with Tom Cruise, “Robin Hood” with Russell Crowe, “Steve Jobs” with Michael Fassbender, “The Butler” with Lee Daniels, “Skyfall”, “Casino Royale”, “Rambo “, “Darkest House” and “Road House”.
The missing titles aren’t a complete surprise, as the streaming giant said some movies and TV shows won’t be available due to licensing restrictions, depending on the country.
Another problem is that the new plan is not supported on Apple TV. A rep for the streamer told Variety that it’s “coming soon.”
The new plan costs users $6.99, compared to $19.99 for its premium subscription.
Unlike its other ad-free plans, ads will run before or during most TV shows and movies, according to Netflix’s website.
The subscription allows users to watch Netflix in HD video quality (up to 720p) on one supported phone, tablet, computer or TV at a time. Users also get access to Netflix games without any ads.
The ad-supported platform debuted in the US on November 3.
