I have Amazon Prime and swap everything else based on what is tending at the moment.
Where did you hear that? I've read what Netflix said about the issue recently and it's nothing like that. Also, it sounds like you are breaking the ToS anyway, so they'd have every right to restrict your activity.I'll cancel it if they crack down on sharing account info like the article I read. They are considering requiring fingerprint authentication (WTF this isn't a banking app), having a text message authentication everytime you start watching something, requiring weekly password changes, etc. All ridiculous and I only share my password with my sister who lives in another city.
This article here mentions it and Netflix in its earning call mentioned wanting to crack down on password sharing, although the article I read on my phone made it sound like fingerprint authentication was seriously being considered while the Bloomberg article makes it sound like more of an after thought. And if I can't share my account with family like my sister, then I'll just cancel said account. I have enough other content to watch that I don't need Netflix.
The one advantage Netflix has over some streamers is it better suited as a complete replacement of cable (of course outside of news and sports). As I have completed stepped away from cable, Netflix is the one streaming service I would hate to be without. I will get Disney+, but its lack of adult programing (no R rated) will hold it back from being well rounded. So I see Disney+ being the few months a year sub for me, while HBO Max and Netflix will be all year round.The problem going forward for Netflix (as well as the other streamers) isn't people dropping one for another, it's people getting used to constantly subbing and unsubbing from them. Why sub to Netflix 12 months of the year when you can sub for 4 different months + 4 different months of Disney+ + 4 different months of HBO Max and be able to watch everything from all 3 services that you want? Losing 1/3 or more of the yearly revenue from a large enough chunk of their regular viewers is what's going to hurt them.
I’m not canceling full stop, but I will be only subbing 2-3 months of the year. When Last Kingdom comes out and stranger things. I’ll binge any other shows I missWhat with Disney+ coming next week (I upped for 3yrs for $140) and all the other streaming services out there, Netflix just doesn’t seem to hold the same value it once did. I have the $17/mo plan for 4K- I find myself watching less and less of their content. Too much crap. I’m considering just subscribing for a month at a time when they add shows/seasons I’m interested in.
He's literally here to bitch and moan about how he doesn't like Disney. After the 4th comment it's just sad. Some people just can't stand it when people like something they dont.
Apparently I've reached my free limit of articles there. Are you sure that's not just speculation? This is what Netflix actually said in their latest CC:This article here mentions it and Netflix in its earning call mentioned wanting to crack down on password sharing, although the article I read on my phone made it sound like fingerprint authentication was seriously being considered while the Bloomberg article makes it sound like more of an after thought.

People who think super hero movies are the pinnacle of man's existence can't understand how anyone else wouldn't also feel the same. Why would anyone want diversity of content when you could have an ocean of G rated greatness?
The article is about a consortium that includes Netflix, HBO, and cable providers looking for methods to eliminate password sharing. It suggested possibilities such as mandatory constant password changes or using cell phone authentication or blocking everything except cell phone/tablet use outside of the primary IP address of the subscriber (not really sure how that would work considering most ISPs don't provide a constant IP address).Apparently I've reached my free limit of articles there.

Okay. Another topic that we haven't talked about in a little while is that of password sharing or stealing or whatever you want to call it. As we get to a more mature growth trajectory in the U.S., does that come back into being something that's important for you to address? And how do you address it without alienating a certain portion of your user base? How do you strike a balance there?
Gregory K. Peters Chief Product Officer I think we continue to monitor it, so we're looking at the situation. We'll see, again, those consumer friendly ways to push on the edges of that. But I think we've got no big plans to announce at this point in time in terms of doing something differently there.
LOLNetflix has totally sucked for a long time and I let my sub run through during the summer. There’s not a single thing I feel like I’ve missed. It’s like when you were in blockbuster and there was that aisle of movies that made you think “who the fuck would watch that?” except in subscription form. Netflix can eat my ass
