Netflix has officially begun seriously cracking down on password-sharing in the US. Today, May 23, the company began to send emails to Netflix account owners who are sharing their membership with people outside their home to inform them that people will have to pay up.
Netflix said in a blog post, “A Netflix account is for use by one household.”
If the account owner is feeling generous, they can spend $8/month on top of their existing membership to keep any non-paying people on their account. If not, anyone benefitting from password-sharing will have to sign up for their own account or move on.
