The great fear of users of streaming services is the arrival of the end of shared accounts -free-. Netflix will be the first platform to open that melon this year with the arrival of its system to prevent us from sharing our account outside the home.
The world’s leading streaming service will offer the possibility of doing them, but paying an extra to the monthly subscription price.
Naturally, those who enjoy movies and series on Netflix are not happy that this new system is getting closer. Threats to leave the platform if these measures are implemented are the order of the day.
But would Netflix be the streaming platform that would feel the most punishment from its users if all streaming services take similar steps to prevent us from sharing the account? It seems that, in Spain, no.
Netflix would not be the most punished if the end of account sharing is imposed
As part of the commotion that is being generated around Netflix’s shared account prevention system, the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) has carried out a general survey, through Barlovento Comunicación, on how many people share an account on the different platforms .
In addition, the survey also collects how many people each streaming service would lose if these measures to increase the precio to be able to share the account.
Despite the fact that Netflix would suffer a significant punishment if the forecasts of this survey are met, it is curious that the fact that it is not the platform that would leave the highest percentage of users occurs: that “honor” corresponds to Disney Plus.
While Netflix would lose around 58.7% of respondentsthe House of Mouse streaming service would see even the 66,8%. In fact, Netflix is the one that would least suffer the “punishment” effect for making you pay extra to watch your movies and series: the rest of the platforms exceed 60% of those surveyed.
Of course, the OCU data is limited to a fraction of people surveyed: the real facts will be seen towards the end of March, when, predictably, Netflix’s movement to end those 100 million global users enjoying their services through shared accounts.
