• Netflix Charging for Password Sharing!

    Netflix subscribers who are sharing their passwords with people outside their physical households will have to pay for each subaccount. They already began sending an email to account holders with a membership that is being shared with someone outside of their household.

    In the email, the company explains that your Netflix account is for you and the people you live with in your household. Users outside the member’s household will have to either get their profile transferred to a new paid membership, or the account holder can have an extra $7.99 added to their monthly bill to continue sharing.

    Netflix used to encourage password-sharing practices because it helped the company grow. However, it’s different now, they are struggling financially against growing competition from other streamers such as Disney, and that’s on top of the global economic downturn. It’s limiting its capacity to invest in new content. They already banned password sharing in New Zealand, Canada, Portugal, and Spain.

    Netflix will have ways of knowing if you are still sharing your account with someone outside of your household. They use a combination of IP addresses, device IDs, and “account activity from devices signed into the Netflix account” to determine if an account is being used in the primary account holder’s household.

      Try using an online dvr service. Play on cl**d is my preferred one. Y’all can work it out I’m sure. Times are too difficult to be paying for kids at college to have to pay.

      I log in from my phone, my work, my house, husband does the same thing. So two of us are logging in from all different places. Wonder if that’s going to matter
