Didn't they already make us all pay more to use more devices before this anyways?! Am I losing my mind???


yikesonbikes1230 t1_j72i8vb wrote

You are absolutely correct. I pay for 4 screens to be used and I literally cancelled the minute this dropped because that is insane to pay for it over and over and to have this kind of hassle. Also edit to add the article says they are not rolling it out YET. They definitely intend to so I won’t be re-subscribing.


matthewamerica t1_j72rah8 wrote

I did the same thing. I had the four screen thing for me, my mom and my kiddo to all use it. This came out and I cancelled the fuck out of it. They were like "Use four screens! Wait .. not like that." We can't be the only two. Plus, there are a LOT of websites based in countries with very lax copyright enforcement that stream everything on Netflix, Disney plus, Hulu, etc. I was paying them as a courtesy, and I believe they deserve something in return for their content obviously, but push your luck and your about to fuck around and find out.


yikesonbikes1230 t1_j72uk1j wrote

Exactly! We can’t be the only ones and I even put it as the reason for leaving. Someone said here to get a firestick and jailbreak it and it is all free. I have no clue how to do that or if it is worth it but who knows!


FourthLineLifer t1_j73b8si wrote

I pay $50 for 2 years of VPN service. I bought a Firestick, downloaded the VPN onto it and a couple of those “not quite legal” streaming apps and haven’t had a single problem! Only sacrifice is sometimes needing to wait a day to watch a new release. Saving money on all those subscriptions and having every show right at my fingertips is amazing. The VPN is also handy for allowing me to watch sports (NHL) and get around blackout restrictions. I’d strongly consider sailing the seas if you aren’t already 🏴‍☠️

I’m no wizard at setting it all up, but there are a few websites/videos that will walk you through the process fairy easily!

BewilderedOstrich t1_j73mlt6 wrote

This is amusing because they already have a massive issue that's worth dropping them over. They have no grasp on how to tell what is and isn't actually popular, and as such there's nearly no reason in starting their original series because you already know, especially if it's something genuinely good, it's not getting renewed.

Now these incompetent people think they can squeeze me for more money? Haha nah I was already dropping my sub.


TheKnightSpliff t1_j74ldey wrote

I was hoping someone would highlight the other looming issue with Netflix.

It's like they're gunning to become the Netscape Navigator of streaming services. An OG, but obsolete.

They pioneered streaming TV & Movies. I get the need to develop their own studio to produce original content due to licensing withdrawals from major studios wanting to capitalize on their content via their own streaming services. Some of them are now figuring out it's not as lucrative as they projected, i.e. Disney+ & HBO Max - licensing was more cost-effective.

But Netflix failed with their original content by creating a graveyard of unfinished stories as their content library.

When they implode no studio will be interested in their volume of half assed productions.

Now they decide it's prudent to antagonize their already disgruntled consumers? Again, an OG, but obsolete.


Emu1981 t1_j75jnba wrote

>It's like they're gunning to become the Netscape Navigator of streaming services.

Netscape Navigator is still around in spirit in the 4th most popular browser on desktop/laptop though (3rd if you ignore Safari) - Firefox was originally split off the Mozilla codebase back in 2002.

I think a more apt comparison would be Atari - a once great tech company leading the way to a bright future who's headlines now include operating a cryptocurrency worth a 3600th of a USD each and launching a failed retro console.

Step 6: profit.

Now seriously though, don’t. Give it a lot of thought, don’t use money you can’t lose, and visit r/wallstreetbets to get an idea of how wrong options trades can go.


bdone2012 t1_j77fwsm wrote

I'm not sure you were serious but from my little understanding, shorting stocks can be a bad idea. Normally when you buy a stock the theoretical worst case scenario is that it winds up worth nothing.

When you short a stock it's the opposite, meaning that theoretically it could go up indefinitely. I'm not sure exactly how the numbers work out but let's say you short Netflix and it somehow went up 10x you'd now owe a lot more money than the amount that you originally shorted them for.

So by accident you could potentially go into debt when you thought you were shorting for an amount that you could reasonably lose.

Well at least in the case of OnlyFans. Tumblr, on the other hand, was sold off by Verizon for pennies on the dollar of what they paid for it. And the buyer is still sticking with the "no porn for me!" idea.

The difference being, Netflix still plans on following through with this policy. The new rules are already in effect elsewhere, and they will be in effect in the US eventually.

Yeah, not to defend them, but you'd think, what are the people who are affected by this going to do? Unsubscribe? They already weren't subscribed! For better or worse, if you're not a paying customer, Netflix doesn't really have a reason to care about you.


MizElaneous t1_j75ev6e wrote

I feel similarly personally, but if just 5% of people in that situation pony up and subscribe, it's worth it for Netflix.

When are companies and politicians going to learn that acting like something was an error looks a lot worse than just coming out and saying we made a mistake. We were wrong. We are only human and learn from our mistakes. That looks a lot better to me than not owning it. It makes them all so untrustworthy when they are obviously lying to cover it up all the while thinking it makes them look better than the truth. No one thinks lying is the best policy. I was always taught HONESTY was the best policy. It's so patronizing to treat your customers/constituents like they are dumb.

This is all marketing bullshit.

Trot out the shittiest option for users, Await the expected backlash, Walk the crap plan back and apologize, Bring out the plan that you were intending to use all along that still screws users over, but with less backlash because it’s not as bad as the old plan.

The article makes clear they’re just testing different variations out in Latin America so why would people get their panties in a bunch anywhere else.

Netflix: Publishes hilariously harsh password sharing crackdown rules

Everyone: Mocks them

Netflix: Oopsie doopsie, here are my still-harsh-but-reasonable-in-comparison-to-my-previous-suggestion rules

Everyone: Very reasonable, have another $15 this month


This is their plan, I'm calling it now.

Good, this would have booted off all:

  • College students who watch from their dorm using the family account

  • Deployed armed forces who watch overseas while using their literal own household account

  • Sandwich generation people, who share their passwords with their older parents who are retired on a fixed income and can't afford little luxuries like this (this is my situation, we share entertainment logins with my in laws)

  • Anyone traveling, want to watch from their phone at the airport or log in to a TV at their airbnb

  • Anyone who watches from their phone in their car on their work lunch break

  • Anyone who watches from their phone at the gym (which is what I do)

I'm probably forgetting a bunch more situations!

I'm a simple man. When I see Netflix password headlines I immediately downvote and move on (because this story is played out). It's becoming repetitive/annoying like the Oscars slap
