It is not yet known when the tightening might appear in Hungary.
Netflix hasn't been very popular for its introduction of password sharing, but it appears to have come out of it well, with the streaming giant recently reporting a record number of subscribers. Then, it's no surprise that other streaming providers are also considering banning password sharing. Disney has now officially announced that it will begin cracking down on password sharing on its own platforms this summer edge.
The new terms apply to new subscribers in the US and Canada starting January 25, and to existing members on March 14.
This certainly parallels the fact that from March, the interface of Disney + and Hulu will be combined abroad, which is already the case in Hungary, the only difference being that Hulu content is called Star content.
Hugh JohnstonDisney's CFO noted that, similar to Netflix's solution, users will be able to add new uses to their profiles for some extra money. During the testing period, this cost $8, which is a lot of money from a local standpoint, as a full subscription costs roughly that amount here.
The updated user agreement states that the company may analyze user accounts to ensure that their behavior complies with password sharing rules.
The profiles of users who violate the terms may be restricted or even terminated by the service provider.
It is not clear from foreign reports whether Disney will implement the strict measures only in North America or globally starting this summer. While browsing the internal contract, we have not yet found any text indicating the restrictions.
