Targeting members who share passwords with people outside their families, Netflix has begun implementing modifications to its account-sharing policy.
US users now have two choices: add more members for a charge, or delete them from their account.
Customers on the basic or premium plans have the option to add additional family members for an additional $8 per month.
Standard plan ($15.50/month) subscribers are only permitted to add one additional member, whereas premium ($20/month) subscribers are permitted to join up to two additional members.
A household, as defined by Netflix, is any group of people who reside together. The same household can continue to watch material while travelling without paying an additional charge.
Customers who are directly billed by Netflix are the only ones who presently have the ability to add additional members.
The main subscriber household can purchase a space for an additional person, who will then obtain their own unique account, profile, and password.
Additionally, subscribers have the option to delete non-household members from their accounts and encourage them to get their own Netflix memberships. Users who have been banned can switch their old profiles to a new, self-paid subscription.
