    The sharing of Netflix accounts will become more complicated. This Tuesday, May 23, the streaming company announced its desire to restrict connections with the same access codes. So American, French users and a hundred other countries will now have to pay an additional cost to be able to share their Netflix password with people who are not members of the same home.

    The streaming veteran has been testing this new formula for a year, and has already set it up in Canada in particular, after a difficult year 2022, marked by losses of subscribers in the first semester, before rebounding in the second.

    “More than 100 million households share their account, which affects our ability to invest in major films and television series,” said Netflix in February in a press release. Prices vary depending on the country: American households will now have to pay almost $ 8 per month to authorize a guest to use their account. In France, it will be 6 euros monthly, as in Spain, instead of 4 euros in Portugal, two countries where the measure has already been established.

    Always access to his account, even on the move

    “Your Netflix account is for you and for people who live with you, that is to say your home,” says an email from the platform that must be sent to all the subscribers concerned Tuesday. The message indicates the two possible solutions for those who already share their identifiers: they can add an additional subscriber by paying the supplement, or transfer the profile of a person outside the home. This must subscribe to its own subscription but will thus retain its preferences. The Californian group also recalls that subscribers continue to be able to watch their programs when they are on the move.

    Netflix, which has more than 232 million subscribers, added at the end of 2022 a cheaper subscription with advertising, after years of reluctance. It now represents nearly 5 million monthly active users, depending on the company. The strategy of restricting password sharing had been delayed. But the tests and deployments in Latin America and more recently in Canada have been conclusive, according to Greg Peters, the general co -director of the company.

    “At the beginning, there were cancellations. And then the people who used used identifiers create their own accounts and add profiles, and we regain land in terms of subscriptions and income, “he assured a conference for analysts in April.
