Netflix set to charge subscribers who share streaming services an extra $8

Netflix will try to limit password sharing by billing subscribers an additional $8 per month if viewers outside their household use their account.

The streaming platform announced the decision on Tuesday after months of seeking to control password sharing and limit viewers to the same household.

"Everyone living in that household can use Netflix wherever they are — at home, on the go, on holiday," the streaming platform said, warning that “a Netflix account is for use by one household.”

Netflix has said the paid password-sharing program would apply to users across the world.

“Paid sharing is another important initiative as widespread account sharing (100M+ households) undermines our ability to invest in and improve Netflix for our paying members, as well as build our business,” Netflix co-CEO Greg Peters told investors during its quarterly earnings call in April, noting subscriber engagement over time is expected to grow as viewers sign-up for their own accounts.

How will they determine who is in a subscriber's household?

If Netflix wants to grow and improve their business they should include and produce shows people want to watch.

Not really knowing anything about Net Flix...that's what I was wondering.

By individual IP addresses, I would reckon.

But IP addresses can be "spoofed"...

The wife and I were using our daughter's account. There's really not a lot on Netflix worth watching. The juice isn't worth the squeeze.

Not a problem. We've never looked into Netflix. Considering the Obamas' involvement, there's no way.
