In a January 19 letter, to its shareholders, Netflix confirmed that it is going to go ahead with previously announced plans to limit users' abilities to share passwords with one another.
The company cited that account sharing occurs in over 100 million households and has undermined the company's ability to invest long-term.
According to various reports, users will have to log in every 31 days to the primary Wi-Fi network or risk having their accounts blocked.
A temporary code can be requested from the service which allows users outside of the primary Wi-Fi network access to the account for seven days. pic.twitter.com/Ni36TkbB9Z— Pop Base (@PopBase) February 1, 2023
It is unclear when this will be implemented in Canada.
In November 2022, Canadian subscribers to Netflix were given the option to sign up for an ad-supported plan, which is a cheaper option. The $5.99/month plan, which is the cheapest thus far of the Netflix pricing options, will have an average of 4 to 5 minutes of ads per hour.
