Netflix restricts the use of shared accounts in Canada, Spain, New Zealand and Portugal

Netflix has created a stir in recent times worthy of a Netflix series(?). Late last month, the company published measures to restrict account sharing. However, after a few days he said that everything was a “mistake”. Those that persisted with sharing restrictions were Chile, Peru, and Costa Rica.,

PiroNow the situation has taken a new turn. The company announces a “new way to share Netflix”., the meaning of the decision (From now on) For Canada, Spain, New Zealand and Portugal, As the firm said in its statement:

We’ve always made it easy for people living under the same roof to share their Netflix account with features like profiles and multi-screen viewing. While they’ve been hugely successful, they’ve also led to some confusion about when and how you can share Netflix.

First, and personally, some are hard for me to understand. It is he who refers to “(…) They have also created some confusion about when and how you can share (…)”. Anyway, new works come in other regions, based on the experiences gathered from Latin America.

As of now Canada, Spain, New Zealand and Portugal have restricted account sharing. This is only allowed for those who contract the Standard or Premium plan. If so, it would be possible to add “sub-accounts” for up to two people., This applies to users who reside at a location other than the person contracting the plan. Each of these sub-accounts will have “a profile, personalized recommendations, username and its own password,” according to the organization.

The additional cost costs 5.99 euros per month for each person. This amount is for Spain, to serve as a reference. What’s more, the brand shared a table/scheme of how the profits are in Canada, Spain, New Zealand, and Portugal:

The customer contracting the plan will have more control, You’ll be able to set your primary location settings, manage your account access and devices, transfer profiles, and watch content on the go.

With regard to the possibilities of “sub-accounts”, they were left to clarify. However, the technophilo medium explained its limitations. Those who use “sub-accounts” will be able to watch Netflix from any account. But only on one device at a time. When downloading content, you’re also limited to one computer at a time,

simultaneously, Single profile is allowed with “sub-accounts”, Your users have been blocked from creating additional profiles.

Meanwhile, someone who is not even related to Chile, Peru and Costa Rica; Nor do Canada, Spain, New Zealand and Portugal receive emails like the following:

There, Netflix self-advertises its benefits. This is where all kinds of questions arise… Is this a way to “guess” possible bans in more countries? Would you do this as a prevention of future subscription cancellations? Will it copy the model put in place in previous affected countries? Will Goku and his allies be able to defeat the enemy? What is Fatmagul’s fault? We’ll only know in the next chapters of the Netflix novel.
