The company’s Chief Production Officer Greg Peters said that the company had been working in this direction for the last two years. It was recently tested and it will take some time to find out the correct charge.
what is the arrangement at the moment
Netflix is also allowing users to add sub-accounts with standard and premium subscriptions in some places. All this account is for those people who do not live with the subscriber. Each sub-account will have its own profile and recommendation etc. It will not be GPS based. It will use IP address, device ID, etc., and from this it will be known whether users are sharing their account with people outside the home or not.
