Just like Netflix did earlier this year, Disney is now looking into being just like Netflix and start trying to stop password sharing on its streaming service Disney+.
This will start in Canada on Wednesday, November 1, which is based off an email the Canadian Disney+ subscribers have been getting.
It has gotten to the point that Disney has updated its terms and conditions for Disney+, according to Mobile Syrup.
“Unless otherwise permitted by your Service Tier, you may not share your subscription outside of your household. ‘Household’ means the collection of devices associated with your primary personal residence that are used by the individuals who reside therein. Additional usage rules may apply for certain Service Tiers.”
Disney’s CEO Bob Iger previously stated that the company would begin getting away from password-sharing by 2024, but it appears as though the company might be trying start it sooner in Canada.
It has also been reported that the company had a 500+ million dollar loss in streaming in Q3 2023 and Disney is looking to bring down its cost for the streaming service. Additionally, the company has also raised prices for Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ this year, as well as release an ad-supported tier of Disney+.
Disney+ is available to stream on the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac.
