Netflix knows you’ll cancel after its password change… but it says you’ll be back

Netflix’s password-sharing crackdown expanded to new countries earlier this year, and some signs suggest it might have backfired – with over 1 million Spanish users quitting in the first few months of the year.

Spain, Canada, and New Zealand were among the new regions to be hit by new Netflix password-sharing rules back in February 2023. In the affected countries you can no longer borrow a friend or family member’s account to binge Netflix shows and films unless you live with them – or pay an extra member fee.
