The financial director of Netflix indicates that he does not close the door to the possibility of adding ads on the platform, although for now, it is not part of his plans.
Netflix finally allows you to remove content from your ‘continue watching’ list and all you have to do is do this.

At the beginning of January, we reported on 20Bits about Netflix’s price increase in the United States and Canada, but a few days ago we published the news that Disney+ will offer a cheaper subscription in exchange for advertising appearing on its streaming service.
The company matched prices between longtime and new subscribers recently.
Disney + will offer a cheaper subscription … but you will have to see advertising
Spencer Neumann, CFO of Netflix, stated in an interview for Variety that the platform is not against adding a subscription with ads, even though it is not in their current plans: “We have a really nice scalable subscription model and, again, never say never, but it’s not in our plan.”
Disney + is not the only one that wants to incorporate ads on its platform, HBO Max has a cheaper option that includes advertising in its series and movies.
The high price of Netflix encourages many to share their accounts with friends.

On the other hand, Variety indicates that Neumann was asked if Netflix was thinking of offering a cheaper rate with ads, after Disney announced its plans to implement them by the end of 2022 in the United States.
The CFO’s response was “it’s hard for us to ignore what others are doing, but it doesn’t make sense to us now”. For now, Netflix’s subscription model has reported good results and there are no plans to include ads on the platform. We will have to wait to see what happens in the future.
