Recently the end of an era has come to Netflix and little by little users in Spain (along with three other countries) are receiving the fatal notification that they will not be able to share account with other profiles that do not belong to the main household without paying an additional fee for it.
To take this new measure to the letter access is restricted to those profiles connected to a WiFi network that does not correspond to the home to which the Netflix account is associatedhaving to either pay a supplement, or directly create a new account that is associated with another household.
Thus, one of Netflix’s main claims is ended, which was nothing more than sharing an account between different households to pay half the price of the chosen rate and that the chosen plan would be much cheaper.
Now only those users who are subscribed to the Netflix Standard plan or Premium plan will be able to share an account, limiting the number of extra subscribers to one and two respectively. All this at a price of 5.99 euros for each additional subscriber.
Will the price of Netflix in Spain go down now that the free use of shared accounts is restricted?
These drastic measures have caused many users decide to unsubscribe from Netflix considering that its prices are too high to assume individuallyespecially if the competing platforms have much cheaper rates, to which is also added the launch offer of the new SkyShowtime.
In view of the imminent massive drop in subscribers, Netflix tries to keep its users by announcing a series of reductions in its rateswhich already began in several Latin American countries on February 13.
Netflix with advertising: all about the new rate
At the moment, the countries that will be able to benefit from the reductions in Netflix subscription plans are Bolivia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Paraguay, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Ecuador, Guatemala and Panama.
Yes indeed, Not all countries will have the same discounts on Netflixleaving the thing as follows:
Bolivia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Paraguay
Basic: $3.99 (was $7.99) Standard: $5.99 (was $10.99) Premium: $7.99 (was $13.99)
El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Ecuador and Guatemala
Basic: $4.99 (was $7.99) Standard: $7.99 (was $10.99) Premium: $10.99 (was $13.99)
Basic: $4.99 (was $8.99) Standard: $8.99 (was $12.99) Premium: $12.99 (was $15.99)
Although At the moment there is nothing announced in SpainIt is expected that Netflix will also apply discounts in these parts as soon as the company verifies the impact of its new measures when all users in the country have restricted free sharing of their account.
However, the big question will be whether, despite the discount made in the price of its rates, Netflix will convince Spanish users to keep their subscriptions on the platform. Time will tell.
