It seems the days of ad-free streaming TV are already numbered. Netflix has started trialling ads with customers who stream their TV and movies via an Xbox.
The good news is the ads don’t interrupt your viewing. They are placed between episodes of whatever you’re currently binge-watching. Also, they’re ads for other Netflix shows, so you won’t be seeing cars, breakfast cereal or other goods. At least that’s what it looks like for now.
A Netflix spokesperson says, “We are running a test to show some of our original programming. As with any Netflix product test, this may never come to all our members.”
