Get ready to pay up.

Netflix has confirmed that its paid account sharing will roll out today in Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain, but also confirmed how it will work for Australia when it launches in the coming months.

As of today in New Zealand, you will only be able to use Netflix is one primary location with up to two extra members paying $7.99 NZD (roughly the same in AUD) each to access a sub account with their own profile including a login and password.

Netflix also put rumours to bed saying that you’;d be able to still watch Netflix whilst traveling and that it would do a good job helping users set their primary locations so that they weren’t locked out in their own house. Netflix will also allow profiles to be transferred to a new account.


  • Set primary location: We’ll help members set this up, ensuring that anyone who lives in their household can use their Netflix account. 
  • Manage account access and devices: Members can now easily manage who has access to their account from our new Manage Access and Devices page. 
  • Transfer profile: 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. 
  • Watch while you travel: Members can still easily watch Netflix on their personal devices or log into a new TV, like at a hotel or holiday rental. 
  • Buy an extra member: Members on our Standard or Premium plan in many countries (including Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain) can add an extra member sub account for up to two people they don’t live with — each with a profile, personalized recommendations, login and password — for an extra CAD$7.99 a month per person in Canada, NZD$7.99 in New Zealand, Euro 3.99 in Portugal, and Euro 5.99 in Spain.
