Netflix hasn’t mentioned anything about the feature’s availability in India yet but we believe it could be introduced in the country in the days to come. The company had earlier this year mentioned it will start charging all users for sharing their Netflix account passwords by the end of the year.

Netflix’s “add a home” feature

The new “add a home” button will be in the aforementioned regions starting next month. Every Netflix account in these areas will include one home where anyone living in the same home will be able to access the platform on any device and can also access it while travelling. However, if you wish to allow someone to use your Netflix account in another home, they will have to pay a fee to use it.

Netflix account holders can add a home to the account by paying an extra 219 pesos in Argentina and $2.99 in the other test regions. It isn’t clear how much Netflix will charge Indian users for sharing their passwords with people outside the home.

Netflix says that users on a Basic Netflix plan will be able to add one extra home, while Standard and Premium users will be able to add two and three extra homes. It will allow users in these regions to control where their account is being used and will also enable the authority to delete homes from the Settings page when they want.

Netflix’s director of product innovation, Chengyi Long said, “it’s great that our members love Netflix movies and TV shows so much they want to share them more broadly. But today’s widespread account sharing between households undermines our long-term ability to invest in and improve our service.
