Most of use that use Netflix share our passwords so others can use it be it your neighbour or friend down the road or in another pat of the country, today you will be getting an email telling you it is game over for such carry on and this will certainly piss people off who have shared their account info to avail of it for free.
This has already happened in other regions and also today those in the UK will have to take the bad news too. You will also be charged 4.99 if someone outside your house uses your account and you will need to opt-in. For me this is Netflix shooting themselves in the foot and the lack of content of late this will not bode well for many and perhaps go look elsewhere for content.

Starting today, we will be sending this email to members who are sharing Netflix outside their household in Ireland.
A Netflix account is for use by one household. Everyone living in that household can use Netflix wherever they are – at home, on the go, on holiday – and take advantage of new features like Transfer Profile and Manage Access and Devices.
We recognise that our members have many entertainment choices. It’s why we continue to invest heavily in a wide variety of new films and TV programmes – so whatever your taste, mood or language or whoever you’re watching with, there’s always something satisfying to watch on Netflix.
