With the launch of MAX today and the changes coming to other streaming services like Paramount+ this year, there is at least one more big notable change coming to the one that is arguably the biggest company in the field.
Netflix announced today on its blog that it is beginning its crackdown of password-sharing on its streaming service.
The company’s blog stated that it will soon alert customers that are sharing their accounts with another person that they will need to pay more in their monthly subscription in order for that other person to have access to that account.
“A Netflix account is for use by one household. Everyone living in that household can use Netflix wherever they are — at home, on the go, on holiday — and take advantage of new features like Transfer Profile and Manage Access and Devices.”
Through the company’s Transfer Profile feature, subscribers, or perhaps the one that pays the monthly bill, will be able to kick off others that are using their account without the reprocussions of having to pay more per month for their account.
What will it cost you to have another user on your account?
In order to add another family member or friend to your account, the user will have to pay an additional $7.99 a month.
The company is expected to have begun sending out emails and alerting customers of these changes coming to the service.
Netflix can be streamed on the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac.
