Additional fee: Netflix: The end of password sharing is now also reaching European users

In Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain, Netflix customers are already facing the new streaming group guidelines. Customers in these countries will only be charged extra if they share their subscription with friends and family who don’t live in their home. South Africa and Latin America were the first regions where Netflix rolled out the new policy.

Therefore, users must select a site through which their accounts will be managed. Of course, the account can still be accessed while on the go: whether that’s on a mobile device or at a hotel. It looks like there will be one-time passwords that can be retrieved. It will be possible to transfer the watchlist from an existing account to a new one.

You can add another person to the account for an additional fee. In Canada it costs about €5.50, in Spain €6. Specifically, this is handled via “Standard” or “Premium” subscriptions.

Netflix estimates that 100 million subscribers use joint accounts. The streaming giant is changing its engagement policy due to the fierce competition that other streaming services are putting on top of the list. The new regulations are expected to roll out in the US and UK in the first half of the year.
