Every movie and TV show that’s blocked on Netflix Basic with Ads

Arrested Development is streaming on Netflix.

Netflix has finally launched its ad-supported plan, called Netflix Basic with Ads. And while it’s cheaper than any of Netflix’s other plans, it also comes with a few major drawbacks. In addition to showing you 4 or 5 ads per hour and taking away your ability to download content for offline viewing, Netflix Basic with ads also features a smaller content library than the other plans.

As Netflix explains on its help site, some movies and TV shows are unavailable on the Basic with Ads plan because of licensing restrictions. Those titles will feature a red lock icon in the top-right corner of the image. Unfortunately, Netflix hasn’t shared a list of locked titles, but GameSpot managed to round up a fairly comprehensive list.

We’ll be sure to update this list if and when we get an official tally, but for now, here are all of the movies and TV shows you can’t watch on Netflix Basic with ads:
