So, Netflix wants to run ads on a paid streaming service. The idea might seem completely bonkers to most of us. Maybe, just maybe, that's only because all streaming services we pay for promise to "remove ads". Consider any from Spotify to YouTube. I know many people who will just listen/watch an ad for free service. However, if you look at video streaming services like HBO, Disney+ or Netflix, they don't have ads at all. "Pay to remove ads" idea is only present in services where one can access content without paying as well.
