A MAJOR change is coming to Netflix with new rule set to impact viewers.
The streaming giant has announced plans to alter the way users can access their services.
The shake-up has the potential to leave millions without being able to watch their favourite TV shows and movies.
Viewers will soon be unable to share their password with others as it makes changes to the sharing rules.
People who have been tuning in by using other people’s accounts will have to create their own logins.
The company has been testing out a new feature to stop people being able to stop sharing with friends and family.
Netflix says there will be a new option to add “paid sharing” which will allow multiple profiles but cost less than a full subscription.
The company stated in its earning report, published earlier this week: “Later in Q1, we expect to start rolling out paid sharing more broadly.
“Today’s widespread account sharing (100M+ households) undermines our long term ability to invest in and improve Netflix, as well as build our business.”
There is not yet any indication when the feature will be rolled out.
Netflix also stated: “We’ve worked hard to build additional new features that improve the Netflix experience, including the ability for members to review which devices are using their account and to transfer a profile to a new account.
“As we roll out paid sharing, members in many countries will also have the option to pay extra if they want to share Netflix with people they don’t live with.”
