Netflix has started to test playing trailers for their original programming in-between episodes of shows on their service and subscribers aren't happy.
One thing Netflix has over Amazon Prime and Hulu is the lack of ads but they're looking to change that. Right now, the ads seem limited to promoting their own original programming (very similar to Amazon Prime who's ads are heavily focused in that direction).
What do you think?
Personally, as someone who wasn't overly happy with them increasing the price of their service earlier this year, I'm not a fan of this idea of this becoming a thing. The reason a lot of people go to Netflix before either Amazon Prime or Hulu is because they can watch without ads.
No idea if this will become a thing for all users and how much more they'll charge for an ad-free experience like Hulu.
Check out some reactions below.
Hey @netflix I really don't need to see the same trailer over and over again between every single episode. In fact I would prefer to just go to the next episode— Why Is That Podcast (@WhyIsThatPod) August 19, 2018
@netflix I appreciate the thought of putting trailers to other Netflix shows in between shows but it’s really annoying so please don’t make it a permanent thing thank u— Kaley 🤙🏼 (@adtrkaley) August 19, 2018
The point of me watching shows on Netflix is so that I can watch ten thousand episodes of shows uninterrupted. These trailers playing in between episodes are really just killing it for me. I hate it.— Breanna (@BreannaNikole12) August 18, 2018
@netflix Please don't force me to watch trailers between episodes. I don't care if it is just one trailer or if it is just for Netflix shows. I really will cancel my subscription if I start seeing these. The service is great right now and this change will make it a lesser service— Drift0r The Gremlin Magnet (@Drift0r) August 18, 2018
Dear @netflix please stop while you’re ahead. We don’t want to watch TV the way our parents did. I would literally rather purchase seasons of the few shows I do watch than use a service with ads.— 𝙹𝚎𝚗 𝚂𝚊𝚟𝚊𝚐𝚎 (@savagejen) August 19, 2018
