I can live with them, just not as many as regular TV.

The article kind of made me think that this has been tested some already.

I like to read people's reviews, so I'm kind of bummed about that.

I don't like ads either. If I'm paying for the subscription service, I shouldn't have to watch ads. But I think that about cable channels too and we all know how that works. So far it sounds like it's just ads between shows (not during) and only for other Netflix originals not outside vendors. I suppose I can get over that as long as it's only one or two ads between the episodes. I can see them allowing in other advertisers and placing ads in shows though, and I'd have a hard time accepting that. I record everything I watch on the dvr and fast-forward commercials or I watch on Netflix later just to avoid ads - if they put ads that can't be skipped in the shows/movies then half my reason for paying for Netflix goes out the window. I'd sure miss Stranger Things though

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

I feel like they've been testing the waters with this. I noticed a few months ago that after you finish watching a movie or show it automatically rolls over into a trailer for a Netflix series. I'm not crazy about ads either. It's one thing about Hulu I had to adjust to when I started using it.

I don't like ads either just as long as they don't show them as commercials while watching an episode. I can take one or two between episodes but not during.

I know that a lot of us use Netflix, so when I came across these changes I thought I'd share them with you all instead of a MOTD today.

The short version is - no more viewer reviews, and they will be placing ads for other Netflix originals between episodes of tv shows.
