Netflix’s new ad tier is available in several countries following its launch in early November 2022. Several titles are unavailable if you switch or sign up to the ad tier, but how many exactly? We can confirm that 5.1% of movies and series are unavailable in Netflix’s ad tier.

A few caveats before we continue. Firstly, this list reflects the Netflix library as it stands today. As a result, this list will contain movies and shows that are due to leave the service in the coming months and years.

Secondly, this list will likely evolve as Netflix deals with any hold-out distributors.

Finally, this list only applies to Netflix US, although, from our research, the unavailable list for each region is mostly consistent.

325 Movies and Shows are Unavailable in Netflix’s Ad Tier

Let’s break down the stats:

As of November 8th, 2022, there are 326 titles unavailable in the ad tier. That means that 5.1% of the Netflix overall library is unavailable. Netflix has 6,324 available titles in total.

Netflix’s total Original library is now sitting at 3,288 titles. Of those 326 titles, 60 are Netflix Original titles. Those 60 Netflix Originals unavailable represent 1.8% of the original library.

The remaining 266 titles are rotating licensed titles or TV series that will eventually leave. Those unavailable titles represent 8.8% of 3036 licensed movies and series.

As we covered in our first article speaking about unavailable titles in Netflix’s ad tier, most titles come from select distributors.

So what Netflix Originals aren’t available in the ad tier? Let’s run through them now.
