  • In the United States, Netflix account sharing will now cost $8 each month per extra user.
  • The charge kicks in if someone from outside your household uses your account.
  • If you’re traveling, you’ll need to verify account ownership.

Netflix started charging subscribers who share their accounts with non-subscribers earlier this year. However, those charges were for countries that weren’t the United States. Today, unfortunately, Netflix is rolling out this change to the US.

Starting now, Netflix account sharing in the US will cost you $8 each month for each additional user. If you have a Basic Netflix account, this will apply to all additional users. Standard and Premium subscribers, though, get one or two additional users, respectively, without an extra fee.
