Netflix is Cracking Down On its Users
This might have a big impact on your household
Netflix is clearly not making enough money.
In addition to raising prices recently, they are taking additional steps to make sure they are ranking in the dough.
This now includes not allowing people to use another person’s Netflix account.
Bad news if you’re using your dad’s cousin’s wife’s account. They are testing new features that will crack down on password sharing across the country.
Primary holders of the account will be sent an additional bill for up to two people who use the account but are not in the same household. Netflix doesn’t care about multiple users in the same household.
They care when there are 20 people who are all using the same account and have different addresses. Netflix already makes a boatload of money, but I can see why the changes are being made.
I’m sure they are losing hundreds of thousands of dollars on freeloaders around the world. We all know of people who share accounts with one another.
Netflix will allow those who don’t pay to use profiles as separate accounts. They will have to pay. The upside is that the user won’t lose their account history and watch recommendations.
The changes are being launched in Chili, Peru, and Costa Rica. If all goes well, the changes will be made in additional countries.
If you havne’t already, I would suggest paying for your own account.
It makes you independent, and you don’t have to worry about these kinds of changes affecting you in the future.
I imagine Netlfix will continue this policy change in other countries around the world. They are losing to much money to let it continue.
To be honest, I don’t know how the account sharing has gone this long without being checked.
Consider this your warning. Be prepared to pay or stop watching Netflix.
They are coming for you next.
