Are you an overly generous Netflix subscriber who has a habit of sharing your password to people outside of your household, such as a favorite uncle or long-distance girlfriend?

We all knew this was coming. Guess my freeloaders will need go start paying their own bills.
How are they gonna know the difference?

Maybe I'm out of town and watching a movie from a Hotel while my family is watching from home - that's legit. And according to the plan I'm on now, I can watch on 4 separate screens at once, with nothing saying that they have to be in a close physical location - just "same household"
I'll just start using a VPN and randomly change my location between the areas my friends and families live.

At $11.99 or even $14.99 I'd be okay with this to a point but between charging $19.99 and putting out a bunch of crap of late I say ****'em.
Doesn't make sense to do this. They've raised prices, what does it matter if people share or not. The only reason I have a higher tier is to share.
