It’s time to buy your own accounts and say goodbye to sharing if you’re not living in the same household, Netflix Thailand announced today.
The streaming service giant has implemented their long-feared plans to prevent users from sharing their password with others around the globe in an effort to shore up their subscriber numbers. They had already enacted password sharing prevention in a few countries last year and now it’s hitting the rest of the world, including Thailand.
“Starting from today, we will begin sending this email to members in Thailand who share their Netflix account with people not in the same household: Netflix accounts are for use within the same household,” its announcement read.
Existing subscribers who don’t live in the same household will have to pay extra B90 to maintain their access.
The add-on membership service can only be utilized with subscriptions made through Netflix directly and paid directly by credit/debit card. It is not yet possible to add additional members to accounts using partner packages or with account billed through another company
After the streaming giant lost a million subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, the Netflix mothership announced it would slowly start to put an end to account sharing amidst increasing competition from streaming rivals such as Disney, Hulu, and HBO.
The crackdown on account sharing began in 2022 in Latin America before being rolled out to Canada, New Zealand, and others, and now the account reckoning has come for Thailand.
