They already sell in streams, where the normal package gets 2 streams and the premium package gets 4 streams.

Why do they care that 2 streams are used when that's what the package allows?

If they don't want password sharing, then limit the lower-end package to 1 stream. Then it doesn't matter how much password sharing is going on.

Especially when they used those additional streams to encourage password sharing.

That was just their drug pushing strategy. The first stream is free. Once hooked they limit password sharing.
