Netflix plans to take action for paid account sharing in the US


Netflix is ​​about to take its fight against account sharing to the United States, and the company wrote in its letter to shareholders, which is in the first quarter, we launched the paid sharing system in four countries, and we are pleased with the results, and we plan a large-scale rollout, including in the United States, in the second quarter, according to to report engadget.  
Since February, Netflix has offered paid account sharing in Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain, and the add-on allows basic account holders to pay an additional fee each month to share their Netflix service with up to two people outside the home, and as the primary account owner you can still watch on your phone and logging into the service on a device outside your home, such as a smart TV in a hotel, Netflix also allows secondary users to transfer their profiles to new accounts.
The company says on the support page: "A Netflix account is supposed to be shared in a single household (people who live in the same location as the account owner), and people who are not in your household will need to sign up for their own account to watch Netflix . "
 In the past, Netflix has estimated that more than 100 million non-paying households could access its service through free account sharing, and the company says this practice limits its ability to invest in new content. To the cancellations, the expansion of paid account sharing comes on the same day that Netflix said it would end its DVD rental business in September
