In an effort to save revenue lost due to password sharing, Netflix has doubled down on its set changes to reduce account users who don’t live in the same household.
This week, the streaming giant reiterated that Netflix accounts were designed for a household and that members can choose from different plans with different features.
The plan is starting to roll out in Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain for the new changes implemented by Netflix to capture revenue and potential new subscribers.
Netflix has also introduced an additional member tier for subscribers who want to add a member.
Subscribers to the Standard or Premium plans can add an additional member sub-account for up to two people they don’t live with, each with a profile, personalized recommendations, for an additional CAD $NZD$7.99 per person in Canada. In New Zealand, €3.99 in Portugal, and €5.99 in Spain
Users now have the option to access account and manage devices, set a primary location and move a profile to a new account for which they pay – taking into account their personalized recommendations and viewing history
