What do you think?

Netflix has reportedly introduced the last thing we ever thought we'd see on the platform – ads. 

Cord Cutter News reports the streaming service has started running ads for other video content between shows, it doesn't seem like that big a deal, but people are really mad about it.

The company confirmed the news in a statement to the publication:

"[We] are testing whether surfacing recommendations between episodes helps members discover stories they will enjoy faster."

"It is important to note that a member is able to skip a video preview at anytime if they are not interested."

Many people involved in the test took to Twitter to slam the streaming service:

One of Netflix's selling points literally reads, "No ads." So we can see why people are upset!

It seems to be a limited test at this point, but should they roll it out worldwide it seems the company may have to worry about the millions of people who will cancel their subscriptions.
