Netflix has made account sharing a fee, but there’s a trick to get around the problem and keep enjoying it at no extra cost. The icing on the cake is completely legal.
Netflix recently made a splash on the internet with the announcement of account sharing, which until now has been free and included in the various formulas. But now it’s over. You no longer need to share the same account with multiple people or friends. Now you have to pay extra for each new head. Internet users quickly became angry. While there can (certainly) be abuses here and there, many people saw it as a real way to use the service without breaking the bank.
Worse, Netflix’s new rules posed the same problem for people who travel extensively. Or the one who just can’t afford to go back to their original connection on a regular basis. The most common examples are in particular young students who are often far from home or users who have to travel for work.
Sharing a Netflix account without paying more is always possible…
However, the fact is that Netflix has decided to roll out its new regulations, which now require users to regularly identify themselves to the household where the account was registered, and which charges about $6 extra per capita added to the main profile It is possible to continue sharing without paying an extra cent.
Netflix does not provide for any sanctions or action (ban, account suspension, etc.) for users who choose not to comply with the new rules with their current account. So the trick is very simple. To continue benefiting from sharing your account for free, you simply don’t have to do anything. Yes, the trick is to do absolutely nothing more or less than what you are already doing. Be aware that as long as you don’t add someone to your checking account, you won’t pay any extra on paper.
…and it’s the platform that makes it possible
At least that’s what Netflix says in a press release discovered by the site. Golem.de
You will then have to pay a few dollars more for each new profile on the account, as stipulated by the new regulations. It’s hard to say how long Netflix will keep its word. Seen from here, it’s almost too good to be true. In any case, at the moment it is without restrictions and completely legal. You can therefore continue to enjoy sharing your account without fear of lightning strikes.
