Why the change in strategy?

Netflix has always tried to balance user experience with the need to generate substantial revenue. The news of a possible price increase had already circulated two weeks ago, and now it emerges that the intent would be to capitalize more on the plan with advertising, thanks to the greater revenues per user resulting from the presence of ads.
