You know it, you’ve done it, you’re probably still doing it OR at the very least you’re on the receiving end of it. Yes, we’ve all either shared or are sharing Netflix passwords with someone outside of our house. Netflix knows this and is working to end free password sharing as we know it.  Netflix is now testing password sharing fees in 3 countries Chile, Costa Rica and Peru that will charge primary account holders an additional fee for users outside their household.  You’ll be able to add up to 2 people outside of your household, each with their own profile for less than the cost of a separate plan…right now they’re starting at $2.99.  According to a statement the sharing of accounts is “greatly impacting our ability to invest in great new TV and films for our members.”  The new fees will start rolling out in the next few weeks and after the test run, Netflix will then decide if and when they’ll expand it to the rest of the world.
