Netflix has started testing additional commissions for subscribers who share their account with other users outside the home.
The new commission operates in Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. If Netflix detects that the account has been used for more than two weeks outside of the main place of residence, its creator will be asked to pay $1.7 in Argentina and $2.99 in other countries to keep the account and continue using the service.
Otherwise, Netflix will delete the account. It will not be possible to restore it, as well as return the money for the paid subscription.
This does not apply to users who watch Netflix on smartphones, tablets, computers and on vacation.
According to Netflix, more than 100 million users use shared accounts. This is one of the main reasons behind the slowdown in subscriber growth. [Bloomberg]
The company is testing the commission in five countries.
