Netflix Disney+ and More Crackdown on Password Sharing as Streaming Wars Heat Up

A coalition that includes Netflix Inc., HBO and cable industry titans is stepping up efforts to crack down on password sharing, discussing new measures to close a loophole that could be costing companies billions of dollars in revenue each year. As The Hollywood Reporter noted, in 2017 the group brought lawsuits against against services like TickBox and Dragon Media that sold devices that pre-loaded with software that facilitated piracy. Participants include Netflix, Amazon.com, Walt Disney, Viacom, HBO, Comcast and Charter.

There's no consensus on where to draw the line. Therefore, the two sides of the industry need to work together to thwart password sharers.

Presently, Disney's Star Wars plans include the release of The Mandalorian on Disney Plus Nov. 12, The Rise of Skywalker gets released in theaters December 20, and plans are underway for more Disney Plus series including a Rogue One spinoff and an Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor. Programmers and distributors blame each other for being too lenient in how many people can simultaneously stream from one account. Fox and ESPN generally allow three.

"Disney+ content will also be included in Fire TV's universal search feature making it easy to find and discover content with your voice", the company added.

The new Disney streaming service will launch on devices from Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku, and Sony. In the latter case, the streaming service would be offered for a few euros extra to nearly all Canal+ subscribers, according to La Lettre A. Expect the Disney+ app to arrive on Fire TV sticks, Fire TV edition Smart TVs, and compatible Fire Tablets starting on November 12 when Disney+ launches.

Iran downs a drone
Washington has responded with a military build-up in the Gulf and put troops in place to support its allies in Saudi Arabia. The semi-official Mehr news agency aired footage it said showed the missile attack that downed "the aggressor drone".

How will Netflix and other streaming services crack down on rampant password sharing?

Previously, bosses at the big streamers had seen password sharing as a necessary evil, with Netflix CEO Reed Hastings describing it as "something you have to learn to live with" in 2016.

Recently, there have been indications that the company may be reconsidering its tolerance.

Smith writes for Bloomberg.
