With the intention of getting these users to pay, Netflix has made it apparent that it is pursuing the millions of customers who share their accounts with friends or family outside of their homes. Netflix is now demonstrating what shared accounts with a fee would look like.
In a blog post , Netflix addressed the issue of account sharing once more, which has become widespread for the service, particularly in light of its ongoing price increases over the years. According to Netflix, frequent account sharing among families jeopardizes the company’s capacity to make long-term service improvements and investments.
In March 2022, the first phase of developing a paid account sharing option was unveiled, allowing users in a few regions to add users to their accounts for a monthly cost.
In the guise of a Home on your account, the streaming service has now unveiled a new concept for paid account sharing. Every Netflix account comes pre-loaded with one Home, which is intended for your home.
More Homes are available on each account tier, and additional Homes on a Netflix account allow sharing with other households at a subsidized fee. One additional home may be added under the basic plan, two under the standard plan, and three under the premium plan.
We will charge you an additional 219 Pesos per month per home in Argentina, $2.99 per month per home in the Dominican Republic, $2.99 per month per home in Honduras, $2.99 per month per home in El Salvador, and $2.99 per month per home in Guatemala to use your Netflix account in other homes. The Basic plan allows members to add one additional house; Standard allows up to two; and Premium allows up to three.
Netflix demonstrates how customers may manage their accounts’ Homes in the video below, and the firm emphasizes that travel is included on all of these Homes so you are not tied to a specific area.
As Netflix fine-tunes its paid account sharing strategy, this novel concept will be put to the test in Argentina, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.
