NETFLIX has changed the name of its Basic with Ads subscription tier, which is cheaper than the streamer's standard version.
The with-ads option, now called Standard with Ads, Netflix subscribers can save £2 a month despite getting access to a pretty big perk.
Subscribers get access to two screens instead of one with the Standard with Ads option.
This is unlike the Basic tier which costs more for just one screen.
The Standard with Ads plan costs £4.99 a month.
Meanwhile Basic costs £6.99 a month.

This plan, which was introduced late last year, is available in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain, the UK, and the US.
"Unlike our other ad-free plans, ads will be shown before or during most TV shows and movies," according to Netflix.
It's a great alternative if you're not fussed about advert interruptions when watching the telly.
However, a handful of devices that can play on ad-free Netflix plans don't support it.

"This is because either the Netflix app or software on the device can't be updated to a version that supports ads," Netflix explains on its website.
While the majority of TV shows and films on Netflix are available on the ad plan, a small number are not due to licensing restrictions.
These titles will appear with a lock icon when you search or browse Netflix.
This includes some of Netflix's most popular shows, such as House of Cards, Arrested Development, Peaky Blinders, The Sinner and The Good Place.
