Change at Netflix!
Netflix, the streaming giant, has announced a whole host of changes to its platform. Eh yes !
There has indeed been something new since the co-founder and CEO of Netflix, Hastings Reedannounced his departure. So he left up to Director of Operations Greg Peters: “2022 has been a tough year. With an eventful beginning but a brighter end. We believe we have a clear path to resume revenue growth. » A message that the leaders wrote on Thursday.
So you got it! They advertise lots of novelties : “ Continue to improve all aspects of Netflix. Then, launch paid sharing and develop our advertising offer“.
So you have understood it, it is indeed thea end of free account sharing. The Netflix platform is therefore hoping for 4% year-over-year revenue growth in the first quarter. That is $8.2 billion in saless. It is therefore a strategy that allows Netflix to no longer lose money.
Because with account sharing, many people do not pay their subscription. It is therefore a great losse, because it no longer brings anything to Netflix.
Know that there are no less than 100 million households that would be affected. So for Greg Peters, co-director of Netflix, it is high time that this stopped: “ This compromises the long-term ability to invest in and improve Netflix. This is not going to be a popular decision”.
A blow for the subscribers of the platform!
This week, Netflix announced want to limit an account to a single household. So there is going to be a function called “paid sharing”, which will therefore allow users to pay a more “ to share their account with people outside their household. »
Netflix has already done a test in 2022 in countries of‘South America. Like in Chile. Subscribers therefore paid an additional $3. And $2.99 for those in Costa Rica. Chengyi Long, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix said more:
“We’ve always made it easy for people who live together to share their Netflix accounts. With features like separate profiles; And the streams for our Standard and Premium. If these functions are very popular. They have also created a form of confusion. So the accounts are between households. This therefore affects our ability to invest in quality series and films for our members. »
L’Express also reports that Netflix worked on new functions on the platform.
For example, users can therefore control which devices use their account “We’ve worked hard to create new features that enhance the Netflix experience, including the ability for members to check which devices are using their account and transfer a profile to a new account.”
Moreover ! We also inform you that the streaming platform has therefore launched its cheapest offer, at 4.99 euros per month!
A very pleasant offer that delights those who don’t mind ads!
