Netflix Cracks Down on Password Sharing in Latin America With $3 Fee

They’ve been threatening this action for a while, now Netflix is cracking down on password sharing, at least in Latin America. 

The streaming service says they plan to send notifications to Netflix users who live in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and Argentina if the company detects that their account is being accessed often from outside of their primary residence. 

On the pricing page listed in Honduras Netflix posted, “Beginning August 22, 2022, if your Netflix account is being used on a TV outside of your home, you will need to pay an extra $2.99 per month for each extra home. You will only be charged when you or someone who uses your account chooses to add an extra home—this fee will NOT be automatically charged."  

On the Netflix FAQ page, they wrote, "the TV will be blocked unless you add the extra home," once the two week grace-period expires.

This same thing happened in Costa Rica, Chile, and Peru back in March. 

If they do this in North America, will this move make you dump Netflix? Or will you fork over the extra cash to keep sharing that password? I guess it’s better than taking on your own subscription. I know I’m paying $19.99 a month for my Netflix subscription.
