Netflix is finally bringing its password sharing deterrents to the U.S. On Tuesday, the streaming giant began rolling out its paid sharing feature in the U.S., which requires that all account users must be in the same household and live in the same location as the primary account holder. Users living outside of a household will be able to join onto the main account for an additional $7.99 a month, though standalone Netflix subscriptions begin at $6.99 a month for the ad-supported version and $9.99 a month for the basic plan. As part of the rollout, primary account holders will be prompted to set a household location on their devices, though subscribers will still be able to use their accounts when traveling. Primary account holders with premium subscriptions can add up to two non-household members to their accounts for the $7.99 monthly fee, while standard plan subscribers can add up to one outside member. The paid add-on feature is not available for those on the ad-supported or basic plans.
And soul, pop and rock icon Tina Turner has died at age 83. Turner found fame alongside future partner Ike Turner. Tina left Ike and ended their singing act after years of domestic abuse. She went on to become one of music’s greatest comebacks in the 1980’s. She basically retired in 2009 following wildly-successful “Tina!: 50th Anniversary Tour”. Tina Turner was twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame- alongside Ike in 1991 and for her solo career in 2021- and received the Kennedy Center Honor in 2005.
