Netflix will launch its first edition with advertising next month, providing cost-conscious users a substantial discount in return for commercial interruptions.
Netflix's ad-supported alternative will also be available in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain, and the U.K., according to COO Greg Peters' Thursday tweet.
Netflix members who sign up for the cheaper plan will also be unable to download TV episodes and movies to watch offline
Peters claimed a "limited" quantity of commercial-free programmes won't appear on the ad-supported version due to licencing constraints.
Netflix's 15-year-old streaming service was commercial-free until six months ago, when it reported its first subscriber decline in more than a decade.
Netflix lost 1.2 million members in the first half of 2018, leaving it with 221 million. In July, management expected regaining 1 million members during the summer. Tuesday brings July-September data.
