This New Technology Could Potentially Bring an End to Netflix Account Sharing - HYPEBEAST

For all the non-paying Netflix users.

  Bad news for those that share streaming accounts with others outside of your household.

  A new technology from video software provider, Synamedia, has just been unveiled at this year’s CES.

  Meant for streaming subscription companies like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and upcoming Disney+, the new software uses AI to track down, analyze and flag users whom appear to be logged in at different locations — for instances where a “family plan” is clearly being taken advantage of.

  Shocking numbers were revealed by Synamedia, divulging that nearly 26-percent of millennials share their Netflix credentials, adding up to losses in the billions (USD) for the pay-to-watch industry, if left unchecked.

  We will be sure to update you if and when the software from Synamedia will be implemented.
