I share my netflix 4K subscription with three other people to keep the cost down.

 

 

Netflix are cracking down on this, you may end up with your account suspended or banned. I am unsure when they started implementing it, but they hired a company to develop detection of this recently. I would recommend you stop immediately.

It's against their Terms of Service (you should have a read). Regardless of what Customer Service says. It won't just stop working, your account could be suspended and you won't be able to use NF any more in the worst case.

I have just talked to netflix customer service just now and they say it is perfectly acceptable to user four access users in different locations. Has worked for over a year.

It's your account, don't say you weren't warned. The TOS will trump the Customer Service Rep every day of the week and twice on Sundays. At best you could use the customer service comments to get you out of trouble one time.

 

If it wasn't against the TOS, they wouldn't be spending money on policing account sharing, would they?

 

 

 

On another note, around a year ago I was at a tech conference and one of the guys there worked for NF as an external consultant. His indications were that management were secretly aiming to have NF priced at $30 USD for the most expensive tier within 3 years.

 

They won't make that target in the timeframe indicated, but I do think that price point is the goal. Perhaps even higher. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they had a $35 tier in due course and if they start to split content into premium and standard.

And we wonder why many parts of the world and society are heading downhill.

Yes, that's because price increases are unfair, unreasonable and terribly shocking news. Apart from annual salary review time off course.

 

Seriously though, it has a LOT of content for the price of an average latte once a week. 

 

NF set the price bar very low, for obvious reasons. But the fickle public see $15 per month for everything as the standard. Thats a bit silly TBH

 

Its a free market, a competitive market, and thats what EVERYONE has been whining about re Sky, it needs competition. Well competition is here, FTA, Sky, the many SVOD services. SVOD services will also compete with themselves, so competition there is what everyone wants, and now has.

 

Sorted.

It must have done.

 

I wasn't aware Apple are entering the SVOD market

Talk about fragmentation, soon, we won't be able to watch the content we like unless we subscribe to all of them, and thats likely to be 7 x $25. So, we will all forego something.

Apple has been in the market for years.  iTunes Movies and TV has been around for yonks now.  TV never made it to NZ but it's been around in UK and US longer than most other services.  AFAIK the only difference now is they're entering the production arena and creating original content now.

iTunes movies and TV? They therefore have had a very similar setup to Netflix? Its not SVOD, its PPV movies and TV, as in 3 movies for over $20 per month compared to Netflix. TV is what $1-50 our ep? Thats what I thought, but now they are going for SVOD, the $20 per month version that covers everything.
