Brace Yourself For Ads on Netflix

Tuesday 02 June 2015
Words Ailis Mara

In an announcement that will be sure to stir up criticism from users of the service, Netflix have announced that it is experimenting with placing ads before and after its shows. 

The streaming behemoth is by far the most popular option for people wanting a cheap, legal and well-stocked platform to watch their favourite shows and movies.

You could argue that part of Netflix’s allure is its ad-free programming, with sites such as 4AD, HBO GO and Hulu Plus all opting to include commercials, arguing that it’s an easy way to keep the service cheap.

For the meantime however a spokesperson made it clear that they would only be advertising Netflix-exclusive shows.
