The Password sharing policy test in South and Central America is confusing everyone involved
Password sharing for subscription streaming services is very common all over the globe. Netflix used to act very fine about it and the company is clearly having some second thoughts as it has been learned about the plans to start the testing crackdown on this practice in some markets. The plan is for Netflix to convert the freeloaders to their own subscriptions or at least charge a fee for non-household sub accounts if they continue to share.
Dozens of Netflix users were interviewed in Peru and the result of this test is not up to the expectations of Netflix. Here, sub accounts cost an extra 8 soles or $2 on top of the existing 24.90 soles subscription. For some of the users the introduction of this policy and the price increase that paying for sub accounts would entail has caused them to call off their subscriptions completely.
