Does Netflix Want To Stop People From Sharing Their Log On?
The answer appears to be eventually yes.
Recently in the Daily Mail Netflix revealed that they were monitoring people who give out their password to friends. At this time there seems to be no plans to crack down on sharing now but that won't be a permanent situation.
The rub for the company according to a vlog from Netflix chief product officer Greg Peters the company is looking for a friendly way to limit sharing subscriptions. But he added it isn't too upsetting to them as long as they're not all watching at the same time, more people can use the same login as long as they know the username and password.
Below you can see the quarterly report and Greg Peters remarks on sharing at 30:28.
