netflix ad tier blocked titles

Netflix’s ad tier has now been out for a few months, and if you’re tempted to sign up for the new ad tier or downgrade, you need to know about the nearly 350 unavailable titles (in the US – other regions will vary) that are blocked from viewing to those on the tier.

This isn’t our only coverage of the titles blocked in Netflix’s ad tier. On the day of the ad tier release, we looked through which distributors had made their titles unavailable, and a week later, we did a deep dive into the numbers.

Back then, we discovered 5.1% of Netflix’s total US library was unavailable. That’s since increased to 5.4%, according to our latest estimates.

Netflix’s ad tier is going to be increasingly important in Netflix’s future which is odd given the resistance to even implementing an ad tier up until 2022.

Speaking to Luke Bouma from Cord Cutters News, we asked why ad tiers, particularly at the moment, are so important for streamers to be invested in:

“As inflation grows and the number of cord cutting options grows increasingly cord cutters are looking for cheaper ad-supported streaming options. Netflix’s ad-supported option helps Netflix keep subscribers that would have otherwise fully dropped Netflix or only subscribed when there was something new they wanted to watch.”

Why are some movies and series blocked on Netflix’s ad tier? It comes down to how the licenses work and the fact that the current contract prevents showing select pieces of content with advertising.
