Are you sharing your Netflix account? Slovaks also pay extra for account sharing – Image and sound – Science and technology

If you are one of those who share your Netflix account with family and friends, you will now have to pay extra. And not a little. The service is expanding billing for account sharing worldwide.

The dog got cold. After the trial run, Netflix decided to charge for sharing accounts between users who do not reside at the same address. “The Netflix account is intended for use within one household only,” the company stated in the introduction of the press release. Instead of a few countries, the new pricing policy will be applied in more than a hundred countries in which the service operates. The main motive behind this dramatic change is the stagnant user base. Netflix expects to gain tens of millions of new paying users by charging for shared accounts.

Slovaks will also pay extra

Netflix has not yet published the exact price increase for Slovakia, but for a better idea, for example, the German price list will serve. Customers in Germany pay 12.99 euros per month for the Standard subscription. Newly, they will have to pay an additional 4.99 euros per month for each additional “non-domestic” user. This is 3 euros less than the price of the Basic subscription without ads (sponsored subscription costs 4.99 euros). In Slovakia, customers pay 3 euros less for access to streaming movies and series (9.99 euros for Standard subscription).

Netflix will require family plan users to connect to their account via one home Wi-Fi at least once every 31 days. If they do not choose a primary address in the settings and do not connect to the service from it, Netflix will automatically determine it based on the IP addresses and identifiers of the devices accessing the account. Devices that access the account from the same Wi-Fi network at least once a month will be marked as trusted. The service will also allow users to generate a unique one-time code for time-limited access from another location – for example, when traveling abroad.
