Netflix experiments extra home fee!

Back in April, the streaming platform started its password-sharing crackdown by introducing an "extra member" fee for subscribers who shares their account with their friends. That fee costs around USD 2 to 3  dollars per month (around PHP 100-150 pesos) and was ongoing in countries like Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru with the company commenting that they will assess the rollout before making any tweaks in other nations.

Now Netflix is trying the extra home fee that charges subscribers so they can use it outside their homes. This experimental phase will start on August 22 in countries like Argentina, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

Beginning August 22, 2022, if your Netflix account is being used on a TV outside of your home, you will need to pay an extra $2.99 per month for each extra home. You will only be charged when you or someone who uses your account chooses to add an extra home—this fee will NOT be automatically charged...

Every time an extra home is added, users will need to pay USD 2.99 (around PHP 168) per month in the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, and Guatemala. On the other hand, Argentina charges a bit cheaper at ARS 219 (around PHP 95).

For worldwide implementation, Netflix hasn't shared a word if they will standardize single charge, give options to users for that "extra home/ extra member", or create another solution to password sharing dilemma.

What do you guys think?
