Netflix: For whom is the cheaper advertising subscription worth it?

From November, the streaming provider Netflix will be breaking new ground: You can enjoy the offer for just EUR 4.99 a month if you don't have a problem with advertising. But of course there are a few other minor ticks compared to the conventional subscription variants. Which are they? For whom is the change worthwhile?

So far, there are three different subscriptions to Netflix: Basic for 7.99 euros per month, Standard for 12.99 euros per month and the Premium offer for 17.99 euros per month. In terms of content, the previous subscriptions do not differ from each other. There is only a difference in the offered resolution (previously 420p/Basic, Full HD/Standard and 4K/Premium). Another point: With the premium subscription, four different devices can use the offer at the same time, with the standard subscription there are still two, with the basic only one user can watch the films and series.

For users of the standard or premium version who, for example, use Netflix on several devices within the family at the same time, the advertising version is hardly an option, since this - like the basic subscription - only allows one device at a time per user. Anyone who relies on cinema quality in their own four walls also needs a more expensive subscription. Although Netflix offers a 720p resolution with the cheap subscription (then also for basic users), it is actually too meager for those who own HD or 4K televisions.

Those who like to watch offline will also not be happy with the cheap subscription version. This possibility was taken away from the users. A small target group remains: A previous basic user who does not use downloads and is not bothered by a four to five-minute advertising block once an hour could be satisfied with the new cheap subscription and save three euros a month. Small consolation: No advertising will be placed on child profiles.

A big question mark remains: The company indicated that parts of the offer will not be available in the cheap subscription. That's because you don't have permission to show ads on certain content. They are currently working on that, but it has not yet been announced which content will initially be missing in the advertising subscription.
