Agreed! Netflix already has to compete with 10+other streaming services (depending on which market). If all of them let me password share and Netflix doesn’t, why bother keeping Netflix?

The only thing saving them is their occasional original productions that hit squid game etc

It really doesn't anymore though. I, and many others, are tired of them canceling shows that we like. Personally, I know quite a few people that refuse to watch Netflix originals until they have a few seasons finished.

Netflix just hates their customers. I don't even share my account with anybody but I canceled my subscription due to their recent "accidental" announcement. I'll probably renew my Netflix account but I'll only have it active for 1 month a year now.

I'm sick of their shit and I refuse to have an active subscription with them year round anymore like I have had pretty much since their inception.

wasting their money on all of those show productions also ironically tanked their company. made them hurt for cash, resulting in what we are seeing now.
