The streaming company announced Wednesday that it is testing a new feature that would require users to pay extra to share their accounts with someone outside their household.
According to a blog post from Netflix, members on standard and premium plans would be able to add sub-accounts for two people they don’t live with for an additional $2.99 a month.

The company will also allow members on basic, standard and premium plans to transfer profile information — including viewing history and personalized recommendations — to a new account or sub-account.
Netflix will test the new features in Chile, Costa Rica and Peru over the next few weeks.
Many Netflix subscribers took to social media to weigh in against the potential change.
If Netflix adds a surcharge for “sharing” accounts I am 1000% out, will dump them right into the trash. Greedy garbage company.
