Netflix rolled out its ad-funded platform Basic with Ads this month with a disclaimer to subscribers to its ad option would have access to 5-10% less content.

Licensing restrictions have prevented Netflix from making its entire library available to Basic with Ads subscribers. The streamer said it is “working on” existing deals to add more content. The restrictions also prohibit users from being able to download Netflix titles.

According to the streaming guide JustWatch, Netflix currently has 1,263 movies and 91 TV shows missing on the Basic with Ads US option. Among them are a number of key Netflix originals like Queer Eye, House of Cards, Drive to Survive.

The list of available titles changes frequently with Netflix adding and removing titles as deals get negotiated.

Bridgerton producer Shonda Rhimes and other Netflix creators including a showrunner for Inventing Anna and the team behind The Haunting of Hill House have hit back at Netflix for adding midroll ads to their shows.
