The new subscription plan is expected in early 2023.

Netflix doesn’t plan to let subscribers download content for offline viewing on its much awaited ad-supported tier, according to a report from Bloomberg. 

The new ad-supported tier, which is expected to be released in early 2023, won’t allow customers to download TV shows and movies to their devices unless they pay for a more expensive subscription. 

The removal of the download feature from what will likely become Netflix’s cheapest plan was discovered by a developer, Steve Moser, looking into the company’s iPhone code, according to Bloomberg. Moser also found that you will not be able to skip over ads or use playback controls while ads are running, the report said.

Rival streaming services Hulu and Disney Plus have also recently announced new ad-supported tiers as part of their offerings: The ad-free version of Hulu will increase from $7 to $8 a month starting Oct.10 and the ad-free version of Disney Plus will increase from $8 to $11 a month on Dec.8. Currently, Netflix’s premium option, which lets you have four streams at once, is $20 a month.

Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
