In an effort to introduce an ad-supported tier to its users, the popular streaming platform Netflix has announced that it will be rolling out its “Basic With Ads” steam plan in the US on November 3 for $6.99.
The plan will also be rolled out in several other countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain and the UK.

From November, signing up is easy: just go to Netflix.com and register with your email address, date of birth and gender to begin with,” said Greg Peters, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Product Officer, in a statement.
