Several SVOD platforms are studying the painful issue of password sharing. In order to regulate illegal access to their content, Netflix, Amazon, Disney and other firms are creating a working group to find solutions.

The Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE) is a group of several major players in the audiovisual landscape. Its members include Netflix, Amazon, HBO, Disney and Canal +.

This is not the first time the group has tried it. A few days ago, the alliance shut down Openload and Streamango, two sites well known for their (many) illegal download links. Although they had many legal uses, these two websites were (among dozens of others) a real thorn in the side of the legal entertainment platforms.

Closed by ACE, OpenLoad was one of the largest film and series download sites.

Password sharing under the microscope

Closing streaming and download sites is a first step in CEA. A few days ago, the Alliance announced the creation of a working group dedicated to another activity it believes is far too widespread: account sharing.

In the conditions of use of the different streaming platforms, there is very little mention of account sharing. If Netflix mentions, for example, the sharing of an account in a family, it is never really mentioned the case of an exchange between two strangers.

In a statement posted on the official website, the Alliance details the creation of a group dedicated to studying such activities: “The entertainment coalition will share best practices and inform on what facilitates unauthorized access to content, including incorrect password sharing.

All you have to do is go to a Netflix Facebook page or even to help each other to see how many people are asking for Netflix passwords. It must be said that by taking the basic offer at 11.99 euros and sharing your account, you are more profitable than by taking the one for a single screen at 7.99 euros. A trick may soon disappear.
