In a notable shift, Netflix has decided to remove its basic ad-free plan for Australian subscribers. This move, leaves Australian streamers with the Standard and Premium plans as the available ad-free subscriptions, altering the entry point for new Netflix Australia users.
The original basic plan, priced at AUD $10.99 and ad-free, has been the go-to option for those seeking budget-friendly access to Netflix’s extensive content library. With its phase-out, the Standard plan, priced at AUD $15.99, now becomes the least expensive ticket to the Netflix realm, offering HD streaming on two screens simultaneously and of course ad-free for new users. However, if you are willing to pay for Netflix and to watch ads there will be a basic plan with ads at AUD $6.99.
