As revealed in the company’s Q1 2022 financial report, Netflix lost members for the first time in over a decade in Q1 2022. Netflix has lost more than 200,000 customers in the last several months, and the losses are expected to continue.
However, Netflix missed its objective of gaining 2.5 million new customers in the first quarter of 2022. Due to the shutdown of its Russian operations, Netflix has lost 700,000 customers. If this loss had not happened, Netflix would have only gained 500,000 new paying customers around the world, well below its original goal.
Due to recent price increases, Netflix saw a decline of 600,000 US and Canadian subscribers. According to Netflix, this drop in subscribers was expected and expected.
In a letter to shareholders, Netflix blamed “a substantial number of families sharing accounts” and “competition” for the company’s “significantly slower” revenue growth. It is estimated that Netflix has 222 million paying subscribers, but there are an additional 100 million non-paying subscribers who share the service.
“More effective monetization of multi-household sharing” is Netflix’s strategy for the future, which implies that Netflix will soon develop mechanisms to prevent account sharing. After a few months of testing, Netflix started charging an additional fee to users who share Netflix accounts with others outside their homes.
Customer accounts may now be shared with two people outside the family in Netflix’s current test markets of Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. Prior to making adjustments in other regions, Netflix said that it was conducting a test to “understand the value of these two features.”
This is the first time Netflix has taken action against password sharing, which has long been a part of its rules and conditions. For the first time ever, Netflix is charging $20 per month for a 4K streaming package.
Only Netflix charges by the quality of the stream, so keep that in mind. In the United States, Netflix charges $9.99 for the basic no-HD plan, $15.49 for the standard HD plan, and $19.99 for the premium plan, which includes Ultra HD streaming and support for four simultaneous viewers.
Netflix expects to lose two million paying members in the second quarter of 2022. Additionally, Reed Hastings said that Netflix is exploring a more affordable, ad-supported plan within one or two years in an effort to reduce its losses from password sharing and other factors.
