By JASON STAPLETONESPN.com | June 17, 2017 12:22:58The next big thing in movies and TV is coming to Netflix and YouTube on Tuesday.
The service, the first to offer exclusive content and content that doesn’t require a cable subscription, is launching a subscription option that allows subscribers to watch and download movies on a variety of platforms.
In addition, Netflix will be launching an ad-free version of its service, with a new $9.99 monthly plan, which will include unlimited streaming and ad-supported access.
The $8.99 plan is available for existing subscribers and will be made available to new subscribers starting Wednesday.
It will cost $9 per month for those who want to keep watching.
The Netflix offering will also include original programming, including movies from the likes of Marvel, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ABC’s The Goldbergs, as well as original series like The Ranch and the comedy, The Jeffersons.
It also includes more than 10 million hours of original content, including films from Warner Bros., Disney and Paramount.
“We are excited to announce our subscription option, which we are calling the Netflix subscription,” Netflix said in a statement.
“Netflix will be offering exclusive movies on its subscription plan.
We are thrilled to partner with Warner Bros. and Disney to bring the movies to a wider audience.”
The service, which comes to select platforms including iOS and Android devices, will not be available to anyone who does not have a cable or satellite subscription.
The subscription includes access to Netflix’s catalog of over 1,400 movies and shows, as long as they have not been made available for other services.
The new $8 per month plan will be available on the Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon Prime Video on June 21.
The service will cost subscribers $9 a month to watch movies on the streaming platform, which has been in development for several years.
The platform launched in May 2017, and Netflix had been rumored to be working on a standalone streaming service in the future.
