As Netflix begins its crackdown on password sharing, the streaming giant’s Canadian division has introduced a new way to stop people from sharing. Netflix Canada confirmed via a release on its website stating the new procedure.
Users will have to set a primary location where anyone living in that household can access Netflix. Any additional users on either the standard or premium plans can add one or two extra members respectively for an added cost of $7.99 per user.
