Netflix price hike may spur growth in illegal password sharing

Netflix's recent price hike might fuel growth among a different group of viewers: password borrowers.

The streaming giant recently announced an upcoming price increase of 13 percent to 18 percent. The fee hike will raise the cost of the cheapest plan to $9, up from $8. The company's HD standard plan will cost $13, up from $11. Finally, its 4K premium plan will rise to $16, up from $14.

Suddenly, borrowing sign-in credentials from friends and family seems like an attractive idea for the cost-conscious.

For what it's worth, streaming platforms already know you're sharing your passwords. And they're not happy about it.
