As promised last month, Netflix officials are following through with plans to eliminate account sharing between households and is offering a number of options to pay for an extra person not in the household.
Netflix subscribers in Canada, Portugal, Spain, and New Zealand on the standard or premium plans can now add an extra member for CAD$7.99 a month per person in Canada, NZD$7.99 in New Zealand, €3.99 in Portugal, and €5.99 in Spain, according to its update on paid sharing.
Netflix in Spain, France, and Germany currently offers the Basic with ads subscription for 5.99€ month, the Basic for 8.99€ a month, the Standard for 13.49€ a month, and Premium for 17.99€ a month. In Canada, these respectively cost CAD $5.99 a month, CAD $9.99 a month, CAD $16.49, and CAD $20.00 a month.
A benefit for extra members is their own account and password, according to Netflix. Extra members can watch Netflix only on one device device at a time. They can also download titles, but only on one phone or tablet at a time. The extra account must be in the same country as the main account holder.
