Netflix's ad-supported plan is missing lots of its most popular shows and movies

Netflix's ad-supported plan is missing lots of its most popular shows and movies

Some users are not impressed.

Netflix has just introduced its cheaper ad-supported plan this week, but not everyone is impressed with the library of content available.

Last month, the streaming platform confirmed that its new plan, Basic with Ads, which is priced at £4.99 per month in the UK, would be arriving on 3 November.

Netflix UK wrote on Twitter: "Enjoy your Netflix experience exactly as it is today? Great! Nothing about the way you watch Netflix is going to change. From November, Netflix will also be available from £4.99 in the UK. Basic with Ads, Netflix’s new lower priced ad-supported plan. A plan for every fan!"

At the time, the streamer explained how the plan would work, saying that there will be an average of four to five minutes of adverts, each around 15 or 30 seconds in length per hour.

Meanwhile, they added that a limited number, from '5 to 10 percent', of films or TV shows won't be available - due to licensing restrictions – which they are working on, as reported by Variety.

"A limited number of movies and TV shows won’t be available due to licensing restrictions, and we’re going to be working on reducing that over time,” Netflix chief operating officer Greg Peters explained last month.

However, it was not specified which titles would be affected.

Following the launch of Basic with Ads, users are reporting a number of popular shows and movies missing, including The Sinner, Arrested Development, The Good Place, House of Cards, New Girl, Good Girls, The Magicians, Skyfall, 28 Days and Peaky Blinders.

And despite Netflix explaining that a number of shows and films won't be available, some fans are not impressed with the missing content, with one person tweeting: "Then there is no point getting the ad supported tier then."

While another joked: "I sure do love paying a monthly fee to watch all of my favourite advertisements without any of those pesky television shows or movies interrupting my viewing experience."

"Then what's the point if I can't watch everything," added a third.

You can still change or cancel your plan at any time, and the Basic with Adverts plan is available on a range of TV and mobile devices.

Meanwhile, it'll be available in 12 countries – Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain, the UK and the US.

Other plans include 'Standard' for £10.99 per month and 'Premium' priced at £15.99 per month.
