The end of Netflix account sharing
Since the end of May 2023, it is theoretically no longer possible to share your Netflix account with third parties other than your immediate family or at least that of your “home”. This term put forward by the firm designates people living together in a dwelling, identifiable via a single IP address. Once this household is defined and the people have their access to it, they can have the service from anywhere, whether at home, on the road or on vacation via the transfer account function and the management of access and devices.
A way for Netflix to better control the use of individual accounts and above all to charge access to an account by a third party at 5.99 euros (standard account) and 8.99 euros (essential account) per month and per additional person, regardless of subscription level. This option also gives rise to restrictions for the additional subscriber that we detail in the article below.
How to subscribe to Netflix?
If the prices are fixed from the official Netflix platform, there are still several ways to lower the bill and in particular through the offers of Internet box operators.
Subscribe to Netflix from the website or app
If it was still possible before to take advantage of a 30-day trial period by subscribing to Netflix, this is unfortunately no longer the case today. On the other hand, it is quite possible to be reimbursed for your subscription within a period of 7 days. This is the legal right of withdrawal, but you still pay the first monthly installment. So remember to contact Netflix customer service before the first 7 days of your subscription if you are not satisfied.
