HBO Max and Disney Plus also do not allow account sharing with users outside the home such as Netflix

As is well known, Netflix, one of the most popular streaming service platforms currently in Peru, has applied new strategies in several Latin American countries to end free shared accounts. As part of these policies, Netflix began to make an additional charge for each user who accesses the account and who is not at the established address; in Peru that charge is currently S/7.90.

Although Netflix has initially promoted the sharing of its platform accounts, using this tool to share the service with friends and family who do not live in the same house has been a constant that was never prohibited until last year. However, if one takes the time to read the Terms and conditions of the service of various platforms, we can realize that the situation has always been specified.

With Prime Videoit is a somewhat different situation, since the acquisition that is made is not only for the streaming service, but a whole package called “Amazon Prime”, which offers benefits on other platforms such as twitch or the same page of sale and purchase Amazon. It is in this sense that, in the Terms and Conditions, there is no specific mention of accounts shared with people outside our home, so the contract would not be violated.
