American media and rental company, Netflix, has slashed its subscription prices in over 30 countries in order to attract more subscribers. According to the company, the region/countries include the Middle East (Yemen, Jordan, Libya, and Iran), Eastern Europe (Croatia, Slovenia and Bulgaria), Latin America (Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Venezuela), Kenya, and Asia (Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines).
According to Netflix, “We’re always exploring ways to improve our members’ experience. We can confirm that we are updating the pricing of our plans in certain countries.”
The streaming giant previously expanded password sharing in countries including Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain; the feature was previously piloted in Latin America. The users will no longer be able to share passwords, they can however transfer profiles.
People using an account can now easily transfer a profile to a new account, which they pay for keeping their personalized recommendations, viewing history, My List, saved games and more. Members of the same household can still easily watch Netflix on their personal devices or log into a new TV, like at a hotel or holiday rental
