Netflix Charging Extra for Sharing

Netflix Charging Extra for Sharing

Taina Batista, Reporter

Netflix will soon charge an extra fee for sharing accounts with people in other households. This is the company’s latest attempt to reduce the password-sharing that has been common among Netflix users for years. The fee will roll out in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru “over the next few weeks” and potentially go worldwide at a later date. The new fee will be paired with the ability for users to transfer profile information including their viewing history and watchlist to a new account or an Extra Member account.
