Netflix first used this method in countries like Chile, Costa Rica and Peruand then try with Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain. It was in Canada where the company received the best response after this measure to attract new customers.
Now Netflix is on target United States and Mexico as the markets that have to undergo this change during second half of 2023And in which they hope that thousands of subscriptions will be canceled after taking this measure as happened with other countries. in which it is implementedExcept in Canada, where there was an increase.
“If you wish to share your account with someone who lives in a different household than you, you can avail of the following facilities: Transfer a profile. Anyone using your account can transfer the profile to their membership. Add an additional member. You can share your Netflix account with someone who doesn’t live with you for an additional $69 per month,” the platform said in a statement.
Netflix co-CEO Greg Peters said this The idea is to push users who use other people’s accounts to eventually invest in the service. Either with your own subscription, or as share access. Or, in any case, that in the end they do not have access to the accounts so that the price is not distorted.
“They’re watching a lot of our shows as a normal paid account, and those have a pretty good chance of converting[to paid shared plans]I would say … And if you’re seeing too little, you’re much less likely to eventually convert.,
“But even in that case, I would say it represents a really important structural change.” We will create one-to-one relationships with no value distortion, no membership distortion, with a whole new range of members. So we’ll see membership grow from that perspective. We will also see an increase in income through this”, he said.
