Mozilla teases ad-free news subscription for 5

Mozilla wants to provide ad-free internet for $5/month

TechRadar has found evidence that Mozilla is planning to release a premium VPN subscription for Firefox, which could cost $12.99 (about £10, AU$20) per month. And now, in a companion bit of insight that comes as the result of a new study, it seems as has been noted in the past that most of you would happily endure the presence of ads on Netflix if - IF - your subscription price was also cut.

In an interview, Chris Beard, CEO, Mozilla mentioned that the company intends to begin offering the subscriptions starting October, The Verge reported on Monday. As per now Mozilla is testing out the program and users who wish to join the program must answer a short survey after which they will be informed when the beta version is launched.

Mozilla is partnering with Scroll, an ad-free news startup to provide this service.

In the opposite one can argue that Mozilla already has an in-built content blocker that users already utilize to surf the web for free.

This ad-free internet service is specially intended for websites that use a paywall to restrict users from accessing content for free up to a limit.

Mozilla has kicked off trials for a new ad-free browsing experience that it says is created to improve the Web browsing experience for users and protect them from constantly having their browsing habits tracked online.

The glass-half-empty part of that news, according to the results of the recent Hub Entertainment Research survey, is that nearly a quarter of Netflix users say they would drop the service if it ever started running ads and if their subscription price stayed the same.

How Mozilla will distribute the payment is not clear, but once the full details will keep you updated. The service is priced at $4.99 (approximately Rs. 346) per month and has been implemented in partnership with a service called Scroll. But expect more websites to be included in the future.
