Movies and shows you can’t watch with Netflix’s Basic with Ads plan


Netflix is ​​finally rolling out an ad-supported tier. This new tier, which costs $7 per month, is designed to allay concerns that the streamer’s ad-free version was too expensive. It was first launched on November 3, and now that it’s available, many potential subscribers are curious to know how it differs from the service’s long-running ad-free version. The main difference, of course, is that all content contains advertisements. Almost as important, however, is everything not currently available on the ad-free version.

No full list of these titles has yet been released, but based on a reading of Variety along with other information available, it looks like there are quite a few high-profile TV shows and movies that won’t be available on the ad-supported level. Some estimates suggest that up to 10% of Netflix’s existing content will not be available at the ad-supported tier, although Netflix has said it hopes that number will decrease as the new tier becomes more established. A “limited number of movies and TV shows will not be available due to licensing restrictions, and we will work to reduce this over time,” explained Netflix COO Greg Peters. Without further ado, here’s the list we know of so far:

TV shows:

There are far more movies than shows excluded from the ad-supported tier, which is likely due to the fact that a greater share of Netflix’s TV shows are originals, while they still have a fairly healthy library of films produced by other studios. This list of films includes three of Daniel Craig’s James Bond films, a number of Oscar nominees and winners, and several other recent titles that are likely to be considered classics in the near future.

There are also many horror and action titles that are not available in the ad-supported tier. Like Netflix more generally, most of the movies that won’t be in the ad-supported tier are newer, and there are still plenty of movies to watch on the platform. Since this new tier is 50% cheaper than the ad-free tier, it might be worth sacrificing a few titles.
