Netflix is ​​going to charge for sharing an account in some countries: the beginning of the end of the bargain

Netflix has announced that, in some countries and on a trial basis, will start charging for sharing the account with people living outside the home. The company ensures that this movement will allow it to improve its ability to “invest in new television programs and movies.”

When someone subscribes to Netflix, the platform allows you to create different profiles so that they can be used by other people who live in the same household, although technically nothing prevents a friend who lives in another address from using it.

Although not endorsed by Netflix’s terms, this leaves many people pay the bill for the streaming service in half and can use it from different locations. Now the company is trying to put an end to this kind of behavior.

Changes in subscriptions

“Over the last year we’ve been working on ways to allow members who share outside of their home to do so easily and securely, while paying a little more,” Netflix says, adding that over the next few weeks, will try the following changes in Chile, Costa Rica and Peru.

Add an additional member: Members of the Standard and Premium plans will have the ability to add subaccounts for up to two people who do not live in the same household.

Netflix will allow these accounts to have their own username and password, although of course, you will have to pay. The price to access this option will be 2,380 pesos in Chile, 2.99 dollars in Costa Rica and 7.9 soles in Peru.

Transfer the profile to a new account: Members of the Basic, Standard, and Premium plans will have the ability to allow people who share their account to transfer profile information to a new account or additional member sub-account while maintaining viewing history, My List, and personalization.
